About Us

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.

Over these fifty years of business we have continued to collect and build up a vast collection of footage from feature films and independent producers. We provide free delivery and research of our collection.

The company has now been re launched for 2017 under the name Captured Planet Media, and still has the same family involvement.

Our goal is to provide our existing clients with the supreme service they're used to, and to share our incredibly extensive and eclectic collection of footage, facilitating the needs of new clients, working to further expand our influence over the industry.
