We’ve recently been working on a project to digitise film clips of Lloyd George.
He made his name at the turn of the twentieth century, becoming Prime Minister in 1916, and was the first British statesman to be captured at length on the fledgling new medium of film. We have some wonderful footage depicting his life, both documentary and family films, and of course the amazing ‘lost’ biopic of 1918.
For the moment we’ve just put them up on our website so that everyone can see them but plans are in development to use them more creatively in future…
Check them out, and if you only see one film, the one to go for is Lloyd George visiting Hitler at his holiday home in 1936.
