This is an extract from 'Perspectives on Documentary Filmmaking', a brand new documentary that was created for inclusion in the four-disc DVD box 'Shadows of Progress: Documentary Film in Post-War Britain

The complete film is one of 32 included in the four-disc DVD box 'Shadows of Progress: Documentary Film in Post-War Britain 1951-1977' - http://fil

1 Approaching plays

Most people's experience of plays will be through seeing them on stage, or on television or video. Or, thinking of drama in a more general sense, we might be avid watchers of TV soaps or films. But, as a student of literature, you are sitting at home with a book open in front of you. It contains the text of a play. What, then, are you to make of the words on the page before you? If the script you were examining was intended for a film or a TV play it would look different from the examples tha

1.3 Representation

Representation is a complex idea, or set of ideas, but it is extremely important in relation to studying religion. Representing religion might mean being an official delegate of a religion, or it might mean trying to explain a religion to someone unfamiliar with it. Representation in the religious context might mean the use of an image to portray a divine figure or religious ideas, or it could refer to how a religion is characterized by either insiders or outsiders. Therefore, the sorts of qu

Our School (1962) - extract
By kind permission of the National Union of Teachers, here is a scene from a documentary they commissioned about the Francis Combe County Secondary School in Hertfordshire (interestingly, a secondary modern as opposed to a higher-profile grammar school). It's a fascinating record of teaching styles at the time, as demonstrated here in which a Scottish teacher discusses accents and ways of speaking with his pupils.
