Limonero Films announced a raft of international sales of Channel 5 UK Title’s "Edwardian Britain in Colour" that had over 2.3 million views in the UK, when it launched last year.
The factual distributor picked up worldwide rights shortly afterwards, and it has licensed the title to CBC in Canada, FOXTEL in Australia and New Zealand, ERR in Estonia, NHK in Japan, Mediawan in France, YLE in Finland, HRT Croatia, and RTP in Portugal,with more deals in the pipeline.
Pamela Martínez Martínez, Limonero Films´ MD, said: "I´m really pleased with the performance of this series worldwide. There is a healthy appetite from global audiences for this type of show right now, and we hope it continues its good run worldwide."
Edwardian Britain was the richest and most powerful country in the world. But what did this mean for the men, women and children hard at work in the mills and the mines? Rare film footage, restored and colourised for the first time, provides an intimate window into how everyday Edwardians lived, worked and socialised. The Edwardian era saw the creation of mass leisure, the suffrage movement, and the beginnings of world war.
"Edwardian Britain in Colour" was produced by MAKE Waves Media, who are now working on the upcoming "Victorian Britain On Film" (1x75´), to be represented by Limonero Films as well.
