The only known colour film of Sir Donald Bradman playing cricket has been discovered in a gift to the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA) and the donor had no idea what he had.

The film was shot in February 1949 as Sir Donald Bradman played his second-last first-class innings in a testimonial match for two of his old New South Wales captains, Alan Kippax and Bert Oldfield, at the SCG.

He was 40 years old and had been recently knighted.

The bright colour footage shows him striding to the crease in front of a packed crowd of more than 41,000 people and playing a few of his trademark leg glances and pulls.

How To Try Out Windows 10's New System Icons

  How To Try Out Windows 10's New System Icons Windows 10 will soon be getting a host of new system icons, giving the operating system’s look a much-needed refresh (in advance of Windows 10X). The icons are slowly showing up in test builds of Windows 10, and you can check them out early if you’re a Windows Insider. If you don’t want to deal with betas, the best you’ll be able to do is gawk at the entire suite of new designs from afar—until they finally hit Windows 10 proper, which should be soon. I think the new designs look great; The monochromatic silhouettes introduced in 2015 have been replaced by colourful and expressive shapes. Unfortunately, not everyone is stoked on the refreshed look.

He scored 53 runs in 65 minutes in the first innings before he was caught out off the bowling of his old teammate, Keith Miller, and did not bat in the second.

Donor had 'no idea' Bradman was in footage

The 16-millimetre colour footage was shot by George Hobbs, who worked as a cameraman for the Department of Information during World War II and later for ABC TV.

It was donated to the NFSA by George Hobbs's son, Adrian, in a can marked "Manly and Bondi Beach, Sydney, 1949".

The senior curatorial officer at the NFSA, Jeffrey Ray, said the Bradman footage was only discovered when the film was undergoing a technical assessment.

"It was just fascinating that it came in and the donor had no idea that it actually contained Don Bradman footage," Mr Ray said.

"The feeling is quite amazing, because it really is unexpected and to get something that really shows someone of such significance as Sir Donald Bradman in colour and doing what he does best — playing cricket in the middle — is just a very special sort of feeling.

"You can't believe it really, because you've been, I guess, conditioned over life to believe everything was black [and white] over that period of time."

The film was taken the year after Bradman's final Test innings, when he was bowled for a second-ball duck against England at the Oval.

What is not as widely known as that final Test dismissal is that Bradman scored another four centuries in first-class cricket after that Test, including three in England and one during his own testimonial match earlier in Melbourne.

He played one more first-class innings in another testimonial match for AJ Richardson, scoring 30 in the first innings before he sprained his ankle on a sunken water tap while fielding.

We Now Have a Beautiful Colour Image of Earth's Minimoon .
Dear Moon, we love you very much. For 4.51 billion years you've been a steady and true orbital companion. So, with that in mind, please excuse us for a brief moment while we absolutely freak out over the tiny minimoon we've just discovered looping around our planet. Designated 2020 CD3, so far we know that it's likely a car-sized piece of carbonaceous rock, and has been in orbit for about three years already. On February 24, the Gemini Observatory in Hawaii took a beautiful colour photo of our new friend, with the 8-meter Gemini North telescope.
