In 1888, Frenchman Louis Le Prince produced the world's first moving image film in Leeds, England. But just as he was about to unveil his invention, Le Prince disappeared, never to be seen again...Seven years on, history would award Thomas Edison and the Lumiře Brothers the accolade as the first people to pioneer film - leaving Le Prince all but forgotten. Now, in this thorough investigation, featuring insight from historians and experts, Wilkinson reveals the truth behind an astonishing story of British innovation, ruthless competition and possibly murder..
