Get hands on with archive film

In new content on September 7, 2011 at 2:11 pm

I’ve had some content published on the BBC History website.

I was asked to write some online resources for the BBC Learning team who work on the Hands on History project, rolling out family-friendly projects relating to BBC historical programmes.

One of the programmes cuurently airing is Melvyn Bragg’s Reel History of Britain. In addition to curating a little exhibition about British social history and archive film (cuurently on tour around the UK) I also wrote some resources for families.

There are four resources now available to download (in English and Welsh!) from the Hands on History site or from the Reel History of Britain site. Or just click on the links below:
