Long-lost moving vision of Tasmania's last surviving thylacine, or Tasmanian Tiger, has been unearthed by the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia.
The film was created through the digitisation of still images found in a forgotten travelogue called Tasmania the Wonderland.
A post on the Archive's website noted fewer than a dozen source films, amounting to only three minutes of silent black-and-white footage of the Tasmanian Tiger are known of.
All the videos derive from thylacines held in captivity and photographed in two locations, Beaumaris Zoo in Hobart and London Zoo. This vision was shot at Beaumaris.

However, after this find, there is a further 21 seconds of footage that has been released by the NFSA.
This footage has been unseen publicly for 85 years.
A confirmed 1935 year of filming positions this film more than 12 months after the previous last-confirmed date of thylacine footage, photographed in December 1933.
