A newly-digitised classic film of the 25th Anniversary Congress of the IARU is now on the RSGB YouTube channel. Taking place in 1950, the Congress was attended by many well-known amateurs from around the world. The silent film also includes some marvellously authentic street scenes—and some decidedly odd motor vehicles. In the Film Archive on the RSGB website you can also read the Bulletin report from August 1950 on the same event, as well as view other historic films and articles.
