During this period of history, newsreels had an unparalleled political and social impact. All feature films worldwide began with a newsreel in the audience's native language. Topical coverage was broad, including health, scientific and industrial progress, religion, sports, fashion, politics, meteorology, agriculture, and disasters. Nippon News provides 36 hours of original Japanese newsreels from 1940 to 1948 with English transcripts.
