Friese-Greene's 1920s colour footage

This is worth checking out - this time it's not a punk video or film trailer - its footage shot in 1920s Britain from an old vauxhall car by pioneer film-maker Freise-Greene in strange colour. Originally titled The Open Road the film is a record of life between the wars. The programme that accompanied it on BBC2 was charming to the extreme with Dan Cruikshank tracking down descendants and reconstructing the shots. Fascinating to see goldfish in the Roman Baths!
