The 50s & 60s in Living Colour

Testimony Films   |   UK

A fresh and entertaining look at the 1950s and 60s social revolution. The three part series uncovers spectacular and long forgotten colour archive from all over Britain. The footage is interwoven with memorable stories of everyday life, told by an extraordinary cast of characters. Reason for Submission: The series vividly brings to life a ground-breaking era that until now has usually been seen in black and white. Colour film was still thought of as an exciting novelty often described as 'living colour'. It draws on an array of beautifully shot documentaries, home movies, newsreels, advertisements and feature films most in glorious Technicolor. The aim is popular entertainment but also informative modern social history.
