Episode Summary

Magical Moving Pictures
As early as 1900, the Lumiere brothers exhibited film on the world's largest screen to an audience of 25,000 people. The brothers Pathé had branches in London, Moscow, New York and the Far East in the early 1900s. George Melies by accident invented the jump-cut stop-motion transition in the same period. This programme features incredible footage, rarely seen, and some of it hand-coloured. A fascinating insight into the birth of cinema.moreless
