We're turning 40! Take a look over the last four decades as we explore our history with a cut-and-paste journey as seen in news, music videos, TV dramas and motion pictures.

This short film was originally commissioned by our Archive team in celebration of the Barbican Estate’s 50th anniversary and was created by filmmaker: Jack Wormell.
