BBC film interviewing West Indian immigrants in Birmingham about their experiences since they arrived. Remarkable.  “We call England ‘the Mother Country’. We have been taught that it is the Mother Country, it has been drilled into us as the Mother Country, from the cradle, really, to the grave, because... Jamaica has been governed by the English for over three hundred years, and so everything about it is English.”

The transport of goods has never been such a topical subject what with Brexit and ‘supply chains’, anyway in the 1950s British Transport Films did its best to show that clanking, smoking steam locomotives were an efficient way of getting goods from A to B. Good luck with that.

Jubilee/BFI Film Series: Pop Goes the Easel! (1962)

BBC film about Britain’s Pop Artists and their crazy, swinging London lifestyles. As the media struggled to get a grip on what was going on ( Warhol, etc ) BBC’s Monitor programme made this including Peter Blake (very droll), Pauline Boty, and others. Watch David Hockney doing the Twist! Great stuff.

Today in Britain (1964) and Supporting Film Or rather yesterday’s Britain filmed for distribution abroad by the British Council to show what us Britons were doing in the 1960s. As you might expect for a promotional film it makes Great Britain look like the Garden of Eden but very interesting none the less and interesting to contrast how a film about Britain would be made now and what tone a film maker might take!

Jubilee/BFI Film Series: The Sea in their Blood (1983) and Act of God (1982)

July 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The Museum of Bath at Work, Julian Road
Bath, BaNES BA1 2RH United Kingdom

Peter Greenaway is one of this country’s most idiosyncratic and often eccentric film makers with a unique take on documentary film making. The Sea in their Blood is concerned with our relationship with the sea as an island nation and how it defines us. Act of God is a documentary about Britons who’ve been struck by lightning. Shocking stuff.
