Footage discovered and restored by the British Film Institute. Between 1900-1913, filmmakers Sagar Mitchell and James Kenyon roamed the country filming the everyday lives of people at work and play. Discovered some seventy years later, the film boasts a world exclusive: the first ever film footage of Manchester United. Episode 1 - Life And Times: The first episode covers the history of the discovery of the films by Peter Worden and the restoration by the Bfi's National Film and Television Archive. Trams, horse drawn carriages, pedestrians, and a newcomer, the car, crowd the streets. It also shows a nation is at war on foreign soil, with films showing both true Boer War heroes, and fictional Boer War villains. Episode 2 - Sport And Pleasure: For the first time the British worker started to enjoy their leisure time, and organised sporting events took off like never before. In Episode 2 we see teams like Blackburn, Sheffield and Manchester United all play. Leisure time also meant the rise of the working resort towns, with holidays at Blackpool and egg tosses at home. Episode 3 - Saints And Sinners: We see the conclusion of this extraordinary series on Mitchell and Kenyon. Highlights include the first ever crime reconstruction film, the success of Mitchell and Kenyon in the United States, and the ultimate demise of their partnership as the rise of cinemas put new pressures on filmmakers.
