   Kevin Brownlow has devoted his life to film. He has been a film historian, a restorer and presenter of silent movies, and a writer.

In 1975, at the invitation of Jeremy Isaacs, he worked at Thames Television on a thirteen-part series about Hollywood in the era of silent films. David Gill had secured many old reels of Chaplin films, which he and Brownlow restored and made into a three-part series, Unknown Chaplin, which won an Emmy and a Peabody Award.
