This has potential to be the BFI's most original release of the year, and the kind of thing only a distributor with access to a large archive can pull off. It's a by-product of the research that went into the recent Screen Heritage UK project, which flagged up lots of otherwise unclassifiable footage, sometimes dating back more than a century, recording and in some cases preserving weird and wonderful regional customs - in this case, the weirder the better. Fans of The Wicker Man should lap this up.
