LOST WORLD OF MITCHELL AND KENYON
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

A much wiser buy is the BFI edition " Electric Edwardians " - far more footage that is allowed to speak for itself with an illuminating interview with Dr Vanessa Toulmin of the National Fairground Archive , who was the historical consultant to this series and whose painstaking research has allowed us to know what M & K were filming , where and when .
