Don't know if you can get this outside of UK. If not then possibly if you can find a UK proxy server using a UK IP number.
History of autochrome and early colour images and films from around the world.
Unfortunately, iPlayer is indeed UK only unless you can find a UK based proxy that is fast enough.
Part 3 is currently on Youtube (but probably not for long: Auntie is watching...). Not actually about Kahn, but heavily featuring his archive's Autochromes. In 3-parts starting at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWeU5OexIls
It suffers from the usual first five minutes of telling you what you already heard in the previous episodes, but once you get past that it's fascinating.

Well worth watching.
