Episode 3 of 5

Duration: 1 hour

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 Falmouth the team see a unique record of National Service in the 50s shot aboard an aircraft carrier, an intimate portrait of life in Brixton for a first generation immigrant from Jamaica, and an aristocratic family is re-united with the home movies they thought had been lost forever.
