Gerry Turvey has been involved in film education since the 1960s, including a Principal Lectureship in Film Studies at Kingston University, and a long association with the Phoenix Cinema Trust in North London. He continues to research early film.
This book sheds new light on the under-researched period of early British cinema through a history of the British and Colonial Kinematograph Company in the years 1908-1916, when it became one of Britain’s leading film producers. The book provides an account of its films and personalities, and explores its production methods and business practices.
