THE OPEN ROAD: FIRST COLOUR FOOTAGE OF THE UK



18 Tuesday 18th June 2013

It was part of pioneer filmmaker Claude Friese-Greene’s collection The Open Road. He travelled across Britain for two years to produce the series, which captures the UK in colour for the first time using Biocolour – a technique invented by Friese-Greene’s father that exposes black-and-white frames through red or blue filters.

Check out some of his other footage of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Torquay, Greenwich Observatory and Plymouth Hoe...
