World's First Colour Movie

Here's a still from one of the world's first natural colour movies ever made. It shows the inventor's children playing with sunflowers: Alfred, Agnes and Wilfred Turner (c. 1902). It was discovered in the National Media Museum in Bradford with more of the inventor's experimental footage. The RGB movie was invented by Londoner Edward Raymond Turner, who patented his colour process on 22 March 1899. His death in 1903 ended the project. Due to the unusual format of his film, it had to wait for 110 years before a gate was created to recreate it frame by frame, so it could then be digitized (CLICK). Below is a National Media Museum video which explains the technical process.
