ABOUT CAPTURED PLANET MEDIA

In 1965, Ralph Rogers began collecting 35mm original negatives at Borehamwood Film Studios to service the film and TV industry, under the name World Backgrounds.

Initially working on titles such as the The Saint, The Persuaders, and The Battle Of Britain to name a few, World Backgrounds soon established itself as a behemoth of the stock footage and film industry.

Working with the top directors, producers and researchers of their day, they shot and supplied footage for major feature films, such as Superman, The Goonies, and Top Gun. Since those early days, our family business has maintained the ethos to provide its customers with access to the original negatives, ensuring the most up to date format and image quality for the high end media of today.

Our Portfolio

Our Footage has been utilised in big budget feature films and Hollywood blockbusters for half a century. The following are just a handful of examples.

We have supplied shots for UK and international television, from TV sitcoms, dramas and documentaries, to advertisments, promo’s and music videos.
