In this image released by Britain's National Media Museum on Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2012, Alfred Raymond Turner, Agnes May Turner and Wilfred Sidney Turner, circa 1902, are depicted amongst the earliest color moving pictures ever made, which have been rediscovered after more than 100 years. The footage, made by cinematic pioneer Edward Turner in around 1901, was found in the archives of the National Media Museum in Bradford and with the help of experts at the BFI National Archive was transformed into watchable digital files.
