The 'lost' footage of Bob Marley's early career

A film charting the rise of Bob Marley and The Wailers to international stardom is set to get its first public viewing this weekend.

The footage, taken in the early 1970s, was lost for almost 30 years, and only returned to its rightful owner in the year 2000.

The BBC World Service went along to meet the film's creator, Esther Anderson and to take a look at some of the footage as well as her photographs.
