In the mid-1920s, filmmaker Claude Friese-Greene made a series of films during an intrepid drive from Land's End to John O'Groats in the early days of the motor car. Claude's remarkable films were shot in pioneering early colour using a process he invented at a time when the world was filmed in black and white. In this three-part series, The Lost World of Friese-Greene, presenter Dan Cruickshank traces the original route in a vintage car, tracking relatives of the people who appear in the films. Dan also shows footage to people who appeared in the films as children and are seeing themselves on film for the first time 80 years later.
