I saw a video about this on YouTube the other day.  It was amazing.  The colorization is remarkable, but they (Weta Digital) also adjusted the frame rates to make people's movements look natural.

All those cameramen at the time were hand cranking the film, which is why so many old film looks fast and have a silent-film "jerkyness" to them.  So they re-timed everything and it's amazing how it suddenly feels "real," instead of just some old film.

Here's a link to the video I saw:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mtz3KHWn1W8

That's amazing! If it's in the UK, we probably won't see it for a year or so, and then on Netflix, the History Channel or AHC.

It is set to be released in cinema's tomorrow along with screenings in schools and other venues. It will then been shown on the BBC at a later date, i would imagine next month. After that it should be avaliable on the BBC iplayer.

Makes sense to debut across the pond,I believe the footage used is from the Imperial War Museum.

There was a segment about this on the One Show last night, a BBC show that goes out every night. Jackson was talking about how it was done, i have a feeling the footage was from a BBC Documentery on how it was done which is being shown next month. jackson was saying that it was a lot more about the colourisation, there was also altering the speed as well as adding sound effects. Amazing work.

They had the historian Dan Snow on the show last night. He asked jackson, who is a big WW1 enthusiast, why he didn't make a movie about the great war seeing as he had everything he needed to do it. Jackson had said that the Great War was his passion and he would never make a movie on it, but he put more effort into this project than he did into any of the big blockbuster movies he made.
