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.
