Interest in the films appears to have caused the British Council’s website to crash.
An online archive of films showing life in Britain in the 1930s and 1940s has been completed.
The British Council said the final 25 clips have now been uploaded to its website.
Among the films are documentaries entitled War Comes to London and These Children Are Safe.
The council began uploading the documentaries in 2012 with the aim of providing a snapshot of Britain in a very particular point in time.
