Lee and Turner Display
Recently we discovered two rolls of film in the Charles Urban collection given to the Science Museum 75 years ago by an important figure in early British cinema. They turned out to be examples of the earliest moving colour film process, invented by Edward Raymond Turner in 1899. This display presents a story full of twists and turns leading to the creation and restoration of the first colour films.
