The BFI presents a unique collection of beautifully restored archival films which offer a fascinating glimpse of life in London during the 1920s. Over two series of short films, Wonderful London captured some of the most evocative images of the capital during the silent era.
These simple travelogues contrast different aspects of city life East End and West End, poor and rich, natives and immigrants often looking beyond the stereotypes to show surprising views of the city. Rapidly produced, but told with wit and flair, the films offer a tourist's guide to both the familiar sites such as Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the Tower of London and the unknown nooks and crannies of the London of 1924.
This unique collection includes 12 films from the collection, six of which have been painstakingly restored by the BFI National Archive to reinstate their original tinting and toning

I recently got this DVD and pleased that I did. Whilst it is far from long enough and should have been a Blu Ray or a Dual format release, it is historically important to any one who loves London and wants to see some of its wonderful past. I saw some great footage of the former London canals and remember seeing an existing canal in the Kentish Town area in the 1970s that had not been covered in.
There is footage of Dicken's London that I had read about and I once worked, briefly, near the Borough where Dickens is said to have written sme of his material in a room or at a table in a local pub. I do recall hearing, many years ago, of a vault in that area being discovered and opened and film was found inside.
More than worth a look and something I will screen often.
