Lyme Regis Museum on TV

Lyme Regis Museum was featured on BBC2‘s Britain’s First Photo Album on Friday March 16, together with the Museum's Education Officer Chris Andrew and volunteer Ken Gollop. The series, presented by the BBC's former political editor John Sergeant, travels around the country in the footsteps of pioneering Victorian photographer Francis Frith. This particular episode included a long segment filmed in Lyme Regis, and was recorded last September. Before the filming, the Museum gave help and advice to BBC researchers on the Francis Frith Collection of photographs that forms the basis of the series. The half-hour programme can be seen on BBC iPlayer until 30 March.
