Video released of Australia on eve of WWI

RARE footage of Australian life on the eve of the First World War will be shown in Canberra's National Museum.

A video montage from pre-war 1913 Australia will be the first footage shown following collaboration between the museum and the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia.

National Museum director Mathew Trinca said the First World War was a turning point for Australia.

"Perhaps more than any other period in history, the years 1914-1918 defined and shaped modern Australia," he said.

"The National Museum hopes these films will help bring those stories to life.

"This will be the first of many exciting collaborations between the National Museum and the NFSA over coming years. Both institutions bring their great collection strengths and wonderful expert staff to this venture."
