Recommended Posts

Hvala za informaciju.

Evo i detalja za prvih 5 epizoda.



1/5: A Vision of the World

This programme tells the story of Albert Kahn, and the invention of the autochrome, the camera system that made colour photography possible and shows the pictures Kahn's photographers shot in 1913, when they made their first visit to London, Cornwall and Ireland.


2/5: Men of the World

This programme tells the story of two of the most ambitious of all the early global expeditions undertaken by the project - the circumnavigation of the globe by Albert

Kahn and his chauffeur Alfred Dutertre in 1908-9 (in which they visited the USA, Japan and China); and the epic 1913 journey by one of Kahn's photographers, Stephane Passet, to China, Mongolia and India.


3/5: Europe on the Brink

This programme tells the story of Kahn's photographer Auguste Leon visit to Scandinavia in 1910, finding widespread deprivation and even famine. He also journeyed to Italy in 1913, and then to the Balkans, where he recorded the increasing volatility in Europe.


4/5: The Soldiers' Story: The War

During the First World War, Kahn dispatched his photographers to the battlefields, where they recorded in detail the everyday lives of French troops fighting on the Western Front. This programme shows the images they captured as they journeyed through Eastern France.


5/5. The Civilians' Story

Throughout The Great War, Kahn's photographers travelled throughout France, documenting the impact of the conflict on non-combatants in the towns and villages of their homeland. Using the striking images captured by Kahn's photographers, this programme looks at the hardship and heroism of the French population living near the front lines of the conflict.

A evo i ostatka ali pod drugim nazivom


The Wonderful World of Albert Kahn - Twenties in Colour


Part 1: Europe After the Fire

Series examining Albert Kahn's ambitious Archives of the Planet project, in which he sent photographers, armed with the world's first user-friendly colour photographic system, around the world to document all aspects of human life.

When the Armistice was signed in November 1918, Kahn's team photographed the scenes of jubilation in Paris as they witnessed the negotiations at the Paris Peace Conference and recorded the horrifying aftermath of four years of war.


Part 2: Middle East the Birth of Nations

The First World War led to the disintegration of the Ottoman Empire and its former provinces came under the control of France and Britain. Albert Kahn's cameras were there to record the establishment of new nations.



Part 3: Far East Expeditions to Empires

Between 1914 and 1928, Kahn sent some of his most talented photographers to the Far East. In Cambodia, Vietnam and Japan, they produced a compelling photographic record of economic and cultural life, subsistence industries, and ceremonial practices, and produced a fascinating portrait of the life of a wealthy Maharajah in India during the British Raj.


Part 4: The End of a World

The last programme in the series shows the films shot by Kahn's cameraman Lucien Le Saint who joined the French fishing fleets in Newfoundland, the film and colour autochromes shot by Frederic Gadmer who recorded Voodoo religious practices in Benin and the experimental colour films produced by Camille Sauvageot in 1928, depicting the lives of farmers, Gypsies and bullfighters in France.



First Aired on BBC Four, Thu 8 Nov 2007... tako da se to izgleda odavno pojavilo :)

šta to ova "teta" skroz desno drži u ruci - neki iPad? :D


ps. veoma mi se sviđa koloritet fotki


To je stara srpska proročica, i u ruci joj je goblen sa radnim nazivom ,,Vizija budućeg dobošara" e sad to što je neki tamo klipan iz razvojnog tima preturao po starim fotkam i maznuo ideju od pripadnika nebeskog naroda raspraviće sa onim glavnim tamo gore kad mu jednog dana dođe ;)
