Alan Yentob marks the unveiling of a major Tate Britain exhibition focusing on the work of Eadweard Muybridge, the English migrant who re-invented himself as a photographer in America in 1852, and went on to pioneer techniques that would become the precursors to modern cinema. The presenter also examines Muybridge's controversial private life, revealing how he was arrested for shooting his wife's lover dead in 1874, with the subsequent trial causing a sensation when the jury acquitted him on grounds of justifiable homicide.
