Event Description

Alan Yentob presents this Imagine film on the interesting life and amazing achievements of one of the most enigmatic and intriguing figures in the history of photography and motion pictures. Brilliant photographer, inventor and showman Eadweard Muybridge pioneered the creation of photographic techniques that prefigured modern cinema and the digital age.

We expect Kingston to feature heavily in this documentary, with the town centre, the river, Muybridge’s birthplace, the Coronation Stone and Kingston Museum all being filmed as part of the development of this exciting documentary, as well as featuring the Museum’s world-class Muybridge collection. The programme includes Alan Yentob in conversation with Peta Cook, Kingston Museum Curator who talked to Yentob about Muybridge, the collection and the Museum’s ground breaking new exhibition Muybridge Revolutions. The Museum and Heritage team has provided the BBC with much appreciated support in the creation of the documentary, including the supplying of images, references and animations.
