Experience London life in a bygone age, from the bustle of the Victorian commute to the ordeal of the Blitz, with this programme of silent films from the BFI National Archive - brought to dazzling life with a newly-commissioned score and featuring a selection of treasures from the Imperial War Museum and London's Screen Archives.
Highlights of the programme include:
• Blackfriars Bridge (1896), an extraordinary glimpse of Victorians travelling to work by horse-drawn tram and on foot at an enviably elegant pace
• Sci-fi short The Fugitive Futurist (1924) sees an oddball inventor startle Londoners with a glimpse of their great city's future
• Scenes at Piccadilly Circus and Hyde Park Corner Underground Stations (1931) offers an ethereal insight into the change and continuity of tube life
• In Colour on the Thames (1935), an experimental colour film process brings the ebb and flow of the great River Thames into vivid focus
