Offering a powerful, poignant and often very surprising insight into the pivotal years of the 1930s, this BBC series unlocks a treasure trove of rare colour films and photographs. It was a decade that erupted into colour. In the 1930s, polychromatic photographic technology really came of age, and in the years 1931-37, three important processes – Dufaycolour, Technicolor and Kodachrome – were patented and brought to the market. For the first time, amateur film-makers really could capture the world in authentic, vibrant colour.

Through the images of intrepid travellers, cultural anthropologists, professional photojournalists and documentary film-makers traversing the globe in the years before the Second World War, this series goes back in time, sharing the extraordinary adventures of thrilling transcontinental journeys. These are telling insights into a time of huge social, political, cultural and economic upheaval - from the emergence of radical independence movements in the East to the rise of brutally-repressive totalitarian forces in the West.
