    'Downton Abbey' creator Gareth Neame hopes to keep series going up to another six years
    He says he also wants to pick the right time to end it; writer Julian Fellowes is considered the key player

    This is not directly about Downton Abbey, but is a lovely film short...in color/colour...of a drive around London in 1927...the approximate time of the current Downton Abbey episodes. Via Twitter...

    More re: that London drive film short:

    A Drive Around London in 1926
    Bryan Dugan

    BFI

    In 1926, British-born filmmaker Claude Friese-Greene filmed the streets of London in breathtaking color. But only recently has the British Film Institute released an extract of their restoration of Friese-Greene's footage.

    The man—who was the son of Claude Harrison Greene, a pioneer in early cinematography—filmed this series of clips after coming home from an 840-mile road trip across Britain. He called this documentation his travelogue and titled it The Open Road. The technology he used to make it, developed by his father, used color-sensitive black and white film shot and projected with green and red filters. The footage was later dropped off for preservation by the BFI National Archive in the late '50s. In 2006, parts were released for a TV series on the BBC, and a full restoration of The Open Road came out in 2007.

    Film history heralds the arrival of color film in the 1930s, but this footage moves that back to the '20s. Restorations on films such as The Open Road show that technology from the '20s could also capture striking images—ones that now give us a vivid glimpse of the past. This snippet by BFI has caught the attention of Kevin Spacey and Stephen Fry, with Spacey tweeting, "Watching makes you feel like you're there."

    Though the Vimeo clip says "London in 1927," the BFI confirms that the film was compiled in 1926.

    I really wish that PBS would run this at the same time as it runs in the UK. It's nearly impossible to stay unspoiled nowadays.

    ITA. I don't really understand why they don't frankly. I read somewhere that PBS prefers to show it when there is less competition from other networks, but at this point does that really matter? Fans are going to find a way to watch it even if it conflicts with something else, even if its later by DVR or TiVo, etc.

    So I must be the STUPIDEST person on the planet because I've watched all of Downton Abbey and I've been following the production of Divergent and I didn't put two and two together and OH MY GOSH THEO JAMES WAS PAMUK AND NOW HE"S PLAYING FOUR AND I CAN"T HANDLE THIS MY BRAIN MY EYES.

    I'm going to have such a hard time picturing him as anything else now, lol. I'll be watching Divergent and all I'll be seeing is smarmy Pamuk. :eek:

    Well, I'm talking about Divergent the movie...is there a show called that too? Divergent is the Hunger Games successor and he's playing the hunky heartthrob type character.
