The Reel History Of Britain

New 20 Part Series For BBC2

Presented by Melvyn Bragg

Liz Kempton, a researcher for BBC Entertainment Production North would like to hear from anyone who might be able to assist with a new series she is working on.

The programmes will focus on different aspects of British life in the twentieth century, told through the rare and unseen film archive of the British Film Institute and regional film archives.  

Each episode will focus on a different aspect of social history and will be filmed at a different location, where the programme makers will take their original 1960s mobile cinema

Mitchell & Kenyon Films

One of the episodes Liz is currently looking at is titled ‘The Dawn of a New Era’ and will look at the Mitchell & Kenyon films, as well as life in the years 1900-1914. 

Liz would like to speak to anyone whose family memories have been passed down from this time. Please contact her direct with any information you are willing to share
