"The world's first colour moving pictures
dating from 1902 have been found by the National Media Museum in Bradford after lying forgotten in a tin for 110 years."
There is an exhibit on Edmund Turner , the developer of the process, at The National Media Museum in London.
The film had not previously been viewed because of the non-standard frame format,
Prior to this discovery it was thought that Kinemacolor
films were the oldest natural colour process movies.
Other early attempts at natural colour included shooting through three filters in this 1903 film
