Empires of the Mind

Synopsis
Phil Cohen is shown working with a group of white 14-and 15 year olds looking at images of Empire and how they reflected the historical conceptions of ‘race’, many vestiges of which still exist. The students see an exhibition on ‘black markets’ held locally and are taken to a local history museum where they experience what a geography lesson was like around the turn of the century.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
