A 16mm motion picture film featuring a television advertisement for Kodachrome II colour film. It begins with a timeline of 'revolutionary' Kodak inventions, ending in 1962 with the introduction of Kodachrome II. This is the shorter version of the commercial. It was screened in 1962, but possibly produced in 1961 by Cambridge Film Productions for Berry Currie Advertising (Vic), who were commissioned by Kodak Australasia.

This film is part of the Kodak collection of products, promotional materials, photographs and working life artefacts collected from Kodak Australasia in 2005, when the Melbourne manufacturing plant at Coburg closed down.

Kodak manufactured and distributed a wide range of photographic products to Australasia, such as film, paper, chemicals, cameras and miscellaneous equipment. Its client base included amateur and professional photographers, as well as specialist medical and graphic art professionals who used photography, x-ray and other imaging techniques.
