Sitting undiscovered for 70 years in barrels inside an empty shop in Blackburn, 800 rolls of film from Edwardian film company Mitchell & Kenyon were unearthed and then restored by the BFI. Using this lost footage, a three-part documentary series was made by the BBC - and the results are nothing less than fascinating. The British working class from over 100 years ago are shown at everything from factories and football matches to fairgrounds in these rare clips. This is not just a fascinating glimpse into the history of Britain's people, but also into the history of filmmaking.
