Synopsis

Describing in detail one of the most inventive periods in the history of English cinema, the volumes in this celebrated series are already established as classics in their field. Each volume details the highlights of a single cinematic year, including details of production, manufacturers of equipment, dealers and exhibitors. This is augmented by numerous carefully chosen illustrations and a comprehensive filmography of English films, fiction and non-fiction, for the year.

Volume 2 details how by 1897 on-screen movement was no longer enough to hold the attention of the public. Film makers were beginning to look for other means to widen the appeal of the moving image, including employing lecturers to accompany the shows and filming newsworthy events. Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee procession through London was one of the first of these events. Almost every major and minor film producer in England covered it. These types of films can be seen as the forerunners of the newsreels of the 1920s and 1930s.



Barnes was awarded the Jean Mitry Prize for a life-long contribution to film in 1998.
