Britain on Film on Tour is a series of extraordinary treasures from film archives across the UK, available to the British public for the first time. After one of the largest pieces of film preservation and restoration ever undertaken, Britain on Film on Tour brings these rarely-seen films directly to audiences through eight specially-curated film programmes.
Sourced from the national and regional archives and newly digitised, Britain on Film: Protest! tells a story not just about specific protests and their causes, but about a tumultuous century, the constant presence of public dissent and its dynamic effects as a weapon of change – at a time when raising our voices feels more essential than ever. Featuring footage all the way from a 1910 suffragist demonstration to female CND protesters spanning the Tamar Bridge.
