          During the 1920s, cinematographer Claude Friese-Greene travelled across the UK with his new colour film camera. His trip ended in London, with some of his most stunning images, and these were recently revived and restored by the BFI, and shared across social media and video websites. Since February I have attempted to capture every one of his shots, standing in his footsteps, and using modern equivalents of his camera and lenses. This has been a personal study, that has revealed how little London has changed. www.mrsimonsmith.com There have been lots of enquiries about the music ... It's Pachelbel's "Canon in D Major", and this recording came from this brilliant website ... http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html Credit to ...

                      Wonderful London in 1924 and 2014 In 1924, Harry B. Parkinson and Frank Miller documented London in a fantastic series of short films, known as "Wonderful London". Over the last few months, I have stood in their foot-steps, recapturing their shots exactly, and have blended the two together creating a window through time. The music used is Symphony No. 4 by Gustav Mahler The recording is credited to Steve Jones Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 4.0 The composition is now in the public domain, and more information can be found on this great website … http://imslp.org/wiki/Symphony_No.4_(Mahler,_Gustav) Wonderful London is available on DVD from the BFI here … http://www.bfi.org.uk/blu-rays-dvds/wonderful-london Making this short follows my previous film “London in 1927 and 2013” tracing the footsteps of Claude Friese-Greene.
