All Our Yesterdays was a television programme, produced by Granada Television, which ran weekly from 1960 to 1973 and from 1987 to 1989. The format was snippets of newsreels shown in cinemas 25 years ago that week. The final series concentrated on 1939. The presenters were: ⁕James Cameron – 1960 to 1961 ⁕Brian Inglis – 1961 to 1973 ⁕Bernard Braden – 1987 to 1989 The years to 1964 focused on the build-up to the Second World War, mixed with more lighthearted fare. The series continued mostly with war footage from 1964 to 1970. Comic relief was provided by wartime cartoons, especially by Osbert Lancaster for the Daily Express. The captions were read by actors. One wartime newsreel which found a new audience was "Hoch der Lambeth Valk". This propaganda film of a Nazi rally, with goose-stepping parades, had been re-edited, reversing some sequences, so the marchers appeared to be dancing "The Lambeth Walk". The effect became a favourite. The title of this series alludes to Macbeth's soliloquy in Act 5 Scene 5 after Lady Macbeth's death.
