World Wide Pictures (UK)


World Wide Pictures is a film, television and multimedia production company established in 1935. Its origins were in the British Documentary Movement founded by John Grierson in the 1930s, producing propaganda and information films for the Government during World War II. After the war, it specialised in sponsored films, advertisements, industrial and promotional films. Two notable early successes were The Undefeated (1950), made to promote state welfare services available to disabled ex-servicemen, and David (1951), commissioned to promote Wales at the Festival of Britain. The company is still in business, making advertisements, corporate videos and multimedia productions.
