Abstract:

A history of the news camera from 1894 to 1919. Follows the development of the newsreel from the invention of motion pictures by the Lumiere brothers and its beginnings in vaudeville, to its becoming an important means of bringing the world's news to the public, with the coverage of important events such as the coronation of Czar Nicholas II, the Spanish-American war, the Boer War, and the First World War. Shows the development of such trends as government censorship, news as propaganda, and the importance of business interests. Illustrates how many of the most popular and effective newsreels of the time were in fact fictional creations.
