Revealing the World's first colour moving pictures!

Made by photographer and inventor Edward Turner using a process he patented with his financial backer Frederick Lee in 1899. Experts at the National Science and Media Museum have dated the films to 1901-1902, making these the earliest examples of colour moving pictures in existence.

Take a look through our historic timeline of images from the first colour photograph to the first colour film.
