Recommended Posts


Just got the BBC4 email newsleter, and thought this one might be of interest :


The Thirties in Colour

1/4. A World Away


New series. Part of the Journeys of Discovery season. In the 1930s, a series of new film processes, such as Technicolor, Dufaycolour and Kodachrome came onto the market enabling wealthy enthusiasts to film the world in colour.


One of the first women to embrace the new technology was the wealthy heiress Rosie Newman, who used colour film to record her travels in India, Egypt, Europe and here in Britain - where she filmed an encounter with children who would figure prominently in the life of the nation in the years to come.



Listing and time here.
