    Podcasts exploring Studio Ghibli films. Regular hosts Michael Leader-a self-confessed Ghibli fanatic- and Jake Cunningham- a Ghibli newcomer- watch a different Ghibli film each week and then assess the work. The 30-minute episodes follow a similar format: Leader starts with a brief history which covers the basics about the director, how the film was financed and its release; Cunningham then offers a critical perspective, and afterwards a guest joins them to offer comments or give an interview. Titles covered so far include Spirited away, Grave of the Fireflies, My Neighbour Toroto, Whisper of the Heart, Princess Mononoke, Only Yesterday and Howl’s Moving Castle. Available via iTunes, Spotify and Acast.

    The LFFF is an independent festival set up in 2012, which celebrates feminist films past and present from international women directors.
    It aims to support women filmmakers in the male-dominated film industry, to get women’s stories out there, and to inspire feminist discussion and activism. The Archive section offers short clips of many of the films included in the programme of each edition of the festival, which combines feminist classics with a selection of current international titles. For example, award-winning A Place of Rage (Pratibha Parmar, 1991) which is a celebration of African American women and their achievements, featuring interviews with Angela Davis, June Jordan, and Alice Walker; Cycologic, which follows urban planner Amanda Ngabirano’s campaign for a cycling lane in her city, and the plea of other women cyclists who negotiate the restrictions imposed on women by society; Ouaga Girls, which shows a group of young women who are training to be car mechanics in Burkina Faso’s capital, Ouagadougou.

    This is a unique database of poems written in response to the Lancashire Cotton Famine of 1861-65. Many of the poems are by the mill workers most affected by the famine and are written in the Lancashire dialect. The poems, published by the local newspapers of that time, are presented here with a commentary, audio recitations and musical performances which draw directly from them. This is an ongoing project of special interest for literary scholars and historians. There are some 100 poems collated so far, of which some are of a high quality, according to Dr Simon Rennie. For example, a Work, Lads, and Think by wool sorter Williffe Cunliam. The database can be searched by date, publisher and place of publication.
