Lost musical scores from silent films have been rediscovered. Julie Brown, senior lecturer at Royal Holloway, University of London's department of music, uncovered the British scores in attics and archives. Experts previously knew of the existence of only one surviving full score. Dr Brown said that finding the scores had been an "extremely laborious" process, involving "searching through archive listings, often under obscure headings, and following up hunches". She has now been awarded a £145,000 British Academy grant to explore the musical film-fitting techniques used for early screenings.
