Britain In Colour
3 x 60'
“Britain in Colour” follows the hugely successful “America in Color” – one of the most ambitious colourising projects ever undertaken. This new three-part series brings the past to life by putting the color back into Britain’s 20th century history. “Britain in Colour” covers one of the most rupturing periods in Britain’s existence - from intimate film of Queen Victoria at the end of the 19th century, to home movies of Britons enjoying the luxury of colonial life under the Raj, to a 60-year-old Churchill losing his shorts in the swimming pool. The series recovers lost images of this period - of wars, depression and social revolution - and bring them freshly rendered to the TV screen for the first time.
