Earliest Color Motion Pictures Found In England

BBC reports –

The world’s first colour moving pictures dating from 1902 have been found by the National Media Museum in Bradford after lying forgotten in an old tin for 110 years. The discovery is a breakthrough in cinema history. Michael Harvey from the National Media Museum and Bryony Dixon from the British Film Institute talk about the importance of the discovery. The previous earliest colour film, using the Kinemacolour process, was thought to date from 1909 and was actually an inferior method. The newly-discovered films were made by pioneer Edward Raymond Turner from London who patented his colour process on 22 March 1899.
