Universal Newsreels did not shut down until the end of December 1967, so it had an opportunity to present images and narration about the growing U. S. antiwar movement. British Pathe´ Newsreels lingered longer, not shutting down until 1970. Thus, it was able to cover the rapidly growing U. K. antiwar movement. The researcher explored how these established and establishment media forms (which had not technologically or ideologically adapted as the world changed) handled such protests. A critical viewing of those last newsreels as they encountered antiwar protest validated social movement theory. Mediated resistance spewed forth in many forms, but the uniformity of resistance suggested the generation gap between the protesters and the newsreel editors played a large role, too.
