World’s first color film footage discovered in England
Researchers at the UK’s National Media Museum have unearthed the world’s first color moving pictures, dating back to 1902. As the BBC reports, the footage was shot by Edward Raymond Turner as part of a test reel that includes images of marching soldiers, birds, and Turner’s own children. The film had been gathering dust in a tin for more than a century before being discovered by Michael Harvey, Curator of Cinematography at the National Media Museum.
