The Lost World of Friese-Greene is a BBC documentary series produced in conjunction with the British Film Institute. Three one-hour episodes were broadcast on BBC Two in spring 2006.

The series showcases film made by Claude Friese-Greene on a 1920s road trip from Land's End to John o' Groats, using the Biocolour process originally invented by his father William Friese-Greene, the moving picture pioneer, later developed further by Claude after his father's death.

This is one of a number of BFI television series featuring footage from the BFI National Archive and produced in partnership with the BBC:
