Some info here"Including unique content from film pioneers Mitchell and Kenyon, the footage will be available only on an app for certain Samsung internet-connected televisions".

Just checked and it was, is an internet connected Samsung Smart TV which has "BFI Player".Oh well..If there are any SL Samsung Smart TV enabled readers, get the kettle on and I'll bring the buns.

Thanks for the heads up, just watched the three Leeds films, they were mostly just processions with very little of Leeds to be seen. The best one was the lifeboats at Roundhay park, two full sized lifeboats with crews rowing on the lake with people diving off the top of the boats into the water, no health & safety then.

The BFI also have a YouTube channel with a lot of films on, including several from Leeds from the same period although I can't find those three. If you have Virgin TV you should be able to find them on the YouTube channel (198 on Tivo last time I looked, and somewhere in the menu in the V+ boxes).
