Home Movie Roadshow Episode 2 of 5

Dan Cruickshank and Kirsty Wark prove that shooting a video and showing it off to the public isn't a new thing, as they present 100 years of Britons' lives filmed on home movie cameras.

After an appeal to people to send in their favourite pieces of home movie footage, an expert team of film historians pored over the results as well as amateur film footage held in the nation's archives. The team then took to the road in a specially constructed 'cinebus' to hear about the films in person.

In Glasgow, the team hear about an astonishing film showing the dramatic salvage of German ships from the First World War; there is a priceless archive of 9.5mm films of working class London in the 1920s; and Terry Jones shows his home movies of the Monty Python team at work.
