Claude Friese-Greene, a pioneer of color cinematography, set out from Cornwall with the aim of creating "a pictorial record of a motor tour from Land's End to John O'Groats." The resulting work, The Open Road, was filmed as 26 episodes to be shown weekly in cinemas. The Open Road is a fascinating portrait of inter-war Britain, in which town and country, people and landscapes are captured as never before in a truly unique and rich color palate. The BFI's National Film and Television Archive presents highlights of the travelogue assembled from the unedited original negatives
