Britain’s First Photo Album

The BBC has produced “Britain’s First Photo Album” –  a programme about the journey of Francis Frith, the man who set out to capture images of Great Britain.

It is being shown on BBC 1 and old episodes are available on BBC iPlayer now.

The website also features information about the history of photography and using photography to record local  history. There are ideas about things to do and  some excellent resources.
