In an interview Jackson said that the trickiest part was restoring the film to good black and white quality.
This involved massive amounts of computer work and experience in special effects.
Along with removing blurs/scratches/grain in the film the biggest change was taking film that was at 14 frames or less and converting to 16+ (regular 35mm fps) where the computer and software have to build the interleaving frames from the original films.
Jackson said he has digitized over 100 hours of Imperial WWI archives and hopes to be able to do other museum and countries collections the same.

Here is hoping that we see future documentaries covering Gallipoli/Palestine/Naval/German side etc. with this newly (restored seems to be an inaccurate term recreated perhaps?) archival films.

^Agreed.  I'd like to see this applied to WW2 archive films as well.
