Limonero Films Spotlights Edwardian Britain in Colour at Sunny Side


Edwardian Britain in Colour, a two-part docuseries represented internationally by Limonero Films, is launching at the Sunny Side of the Doc market in La Rochelle, France.

Edwardian Britain in Colour shines a new light on the era in which the country was the richest and most powerful in the world through rare film footage that has been restored and colorized for the first time. The images show how everyday Edwardians lived, worked and socialized during a time that saw the creation of mass leisure, the suffrage movement and the beginnings of world war.

Limonero Films is working with the U.K.- and Singapore-based production company MAKE Waves Media to distribute Edwardian Britain in Colour, which was commissioned by Channel 5 in the U.K.

Pamela Martínez Martínez, head of sales and acquisitions at Limonero Films, said: “This title is a pleasure trip down history lane. Emotional, educational and entertaining. This is our third collaboration with MAKE, and I’m delighted to be representing it internationally. With a total of 2.3 million spectators in the U.K., I’m sure it will do just as well worldwide.”

Sian Kevill of Make Waves Media said: “We are thrilled to be working with Limonero Films again on this new series. We have used cutting-edge colorization techniques to make history into something very human again. The color makes you notice tiny things you hadn’t seen before—faces, clothes, expressions. This series opens a door and lets you step into a lost world.”
