    Product Description

    The Lost World Of Mitchell And Kenyon: Complete BBC Series (DVD)

    Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play.


    A film by Sagar Mitchell and James Kenyon

    Over a century ago, filmmaker Sagar Mitchell and James roamed England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales filming everyday lives of people at work and at play. For 70 years, 800 rolls of their early nitrate film sat in sealed barrels in the basement of a local shop in Blackburn. Miraculously discovered by a local businessman and painstakingly restored by the British Film Institute, this BBC series details the story and treasures of the most exciting film discovery of recent times.

    The BBC and the British Film Institute bring all this onto the screen with The Lost World of Mitchell and Kenyon. Presented by Dan Cruickshank, this series opens up the past and boasts a world exclusive: the first ever footage of Manchester United. Along the way, we interview descendants seeing extraordinary films of their ancestors for the first time.

    Episode 1 - Life & Times
    The films are discovered by Peter Worden and restored by the BFI's National Film and Television Archive. The story of Mitchell and Kenyon begins with bustling streets at home and controversial war abroad

    Episode 2 - Sport & Pleasure
    For the first time, the British worker starts enjoying new leisure, swelling crowds at football matches at Preston North End, Liverpool and Manchester United. People flock to holidays in Blackpool and to egg rolling at home

    Episode 3 - Saints & Sinners
    To conclude this extraordinary series, we see the first ever crime reconstruction film, the success of Mitchell and Kenyon in the USA and the ultimate demise of their partnership
