Films for kids have changed dramatically over the last 100 years, as seen in this family-friendly collection.
Here you can find tales of mountaineering adventure in the Lake District with Eagle Rock (1965) or fall into the magic of Alice in Wonderland (1903), which still has the capacity to enchant younger viewers despite being the first version ever put onto celluloid. Never less than thoroughly entertaining, these films are bound to drum up nostalgia in adults whilst introducing younger audiences to the delights of early British family film.
