Limonero Films launches ‘Edwardian Britain In Colour’

Doc distributor Limonero Films has acquired Channel 5 series Edwardian Britain In Colour and will debut the programme in La Rochelle.

The 2 x 60-minute series, produced by Make Waves Media, explores Britain during the first decade of the 20th century, with rare film footage that has been restored and colourised for the first time. The Edwardian era saw the creation of mass leisure, the suffrage movement and the beginnings of the First World War.

Pamela Martinez Martinez, founder of Limonero Films, said: “This title is a pleasure trip down history lane – emotional, educational and entertaining. This is our third collaboration with Make and I’m delighted to be representing it internationally. With a total audience of 2.3m in the UK, I’m sure it will do just as well worldwide.”

Make Waves Media’s Sian Kevill said: “We are thrilled to be working with Limonero Films again on this new series. We have used cutting-edge colourisation techniques to make history into something very human again. The colour makes you notice tiny things you hadn’t seen before – faces, clothes and expressions.  This series opens a door and lets you step into a lost world.”
