Photographer and classic Film maker Claude Friese-Greene is famed for shooting a few of the first  colour film footage in London - the video below is from way back in 1927!

 

 

Film pioneers are usually associated with French names like Lumiere and Melies, but Friese-Greene’s style captures London in acute detail for its time.  The video is eerily calm and doesnt look that much different from the London we know today - see what you think?

The British Film Institute have used computer enhancement to minimise the flickering and low quality of the original bicolour film.
