A half-hour nostalgia documentary programme from Granada which screened old newsreel footage from that week but 25 years ago.

The shows comprised footage from the old twice-weekly Pathé cinema newsreels which were shown in the 1930s and 1940s, and later included archive television news footage and studio guests.

All Our Yesterdays proved exceedingly popular with British TV viewers (proving that people were interested in nostalgia even in the Sixties) and was originally narrated by James Cameron, and later by Brian Inglis (pictured above) who carried the programme for a further 600 editions until 1973.

When the she series was resurrected in 1987, Bernard Braden was the new host and television archives were raided for footage.
