TO MATCH AFP STORY BY ROBIN MILLARD Sect

TO MATCH AFP STORY BY ROBIN MILLARD Section Leader for Image Quality, Ben Thompson, looks at film canisters within the acetate vault at the BFI (British Film Institute) film archive in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire on July 23, 2010. Examining buckled film reels under a microscope, technicians pore over each precious original frame of Alfred Hitchcock's early movies as Britain bids to salvage the master's magic. The delicate nitrate reel -- brown, brittle and shrunken -- is handled with extreme care as they scrutinise the opening credits of the 1927 film 'The Lodger' for every miniscule scratch, blotch and speck. The British Film Institute is undertaking a mammoth project to restore Hitchcock's silent movies to their former glory. Photo taken July 23, 2010.
