In the mid-1920's, pioneering film maker Claude Friese-Greene made a series of films during an intrepid drive from Lands End to John O'Groats in the early days of the motor car. Claude's remarkable films were shot in pioneering early colour using a process he'd invented himself at a time when the world was filmed in black and white.

In this three part series presenter Dan Cruickshank traces the original route in a vintage car, tracking relatives of people who appeared in the films. Dan also shows footage to people who appeared in the films as children and are seeing themselves on film for the first time 80 years later!

Film one starts with the West Country as Dan uncovers radical changes in rural traditions from cider making ro stag hunting and takes a look back at holiday fun at the seaside. Film two picks up his journey on Cirencester, travels onwards to Wales through the Midlands and North to Lancashire and the Lakes. In The final film he journeys through Scotland, meeting local experts and the descendants of people in the films, with breathtaking scenery all the way.

This unique archive of Friese-Greene footage, preserved and restored by the BFI, reveals many things in the UK have changed in 80 years, as well as, suprisingly, what has remained.
  • Extended interviews with the people Dan Cruickshank encounters on his journey
  • Interview with cinematographer Jack Cardiff
