The National Media Museum in Bradford have discovered and restored the worlds first colour film footage dating back to 1902.
A complicated process, it involved photographing successive frames of black-and-white film through blue, green and red filters. Using a special projector (which you can see in the gallery) these were combined on a screen to produce full-colour images.
The full footage is on show in Bradford, but clips can be seen in the documentary video on the NMM website.
For countries that aren’t lucky enough to have the CBBC children’s channel, and in particular, the Horrible Histories series, I offer the Viking Song to you. You won’t be able to get it out of your head… LITERALLY!!
