produced by Sagar Mitchell, 1866-1952 and James Kenyon, 1850-1925, Mitchell and Kenyon (London, England: British Film Institute, 2008), 16 secs

Blackpool's striking Victoria Pier opened in 1893, just in time to cater for a boom in visitors with more leisure time on their hands. The film shows holidaymakers promenading in Sunday best and parasols, circling past the camera to make sure their faces are in shot. The film would have been shown repeatedly, foll...

Infantry at Pretoria

produced by Sagar Mitchell, 1866-1952 and James Kenyon, 1850-1925, Mitchell and Kenyon (London, England: British Film Institute, 1900), 3 mins

Mitchell and Kenyon filmed numerous military parades, returning troops and fictional accounts of the conflict in South Africa. But this footage remains an anomaly. We know that M&K didn't travel to Pretoria (and these grainy pictures, shot from a distance, bear none of their stylistic hallmarks). Did they buy the...

Lady Mostyn Discharging Grain at Irvine
See details
produced by Sagar Mitchell, 1866-1952 and James Kenyon, 1850-1925, Mitchell and Kenyon (London, England: British Film Institute, 1902), 2 mins
The job of an Edwardian stevedore was back-breaking, as this film, showing cargo ship Lady Mostyn unloading at Irvine docks, makes clear. A winch loads the grain into sacks, but they are carried down a gang plank to the waiting carts on broad shoulders. It's hard not to be impressed at this physical feat: the sack...

These short scenes were filmed in January 1902 in and around Wexford's Bull Ring market, capturing an array of local characters, including a cheery fishwife.

This extremely well-crafted actuality story shows the local lads of the Third Volunteer Battalion of the Durham Light Infantry receiving honours in front of their drill hall ground at the top of Sunderland's High Street West. Twenty-five men were nominated for awards, but by the time this presentation was filmed b...

Believed to be the first time a Grand National winner has been captured on camera, this film was taken on two separate visits in January 1902 to the stables of champion steeple-chaser Ambush II, owned by King Edward VII. With the horse unavailable to film on their first visit, the camera crew made do with shooting...

This film was screened at the annual Dewsbury Feast in July 1900, to much approval. Said one local paper: "the living picture holds the field. To see ourselves as others see us was the leading thing, and we were met with the alluring notice that there was on view scenes outside the mills." These were provided by "...
