    Film Studies, Politics and Government

    An on-going project whose core function is to make accessible primary material related to the history of the Ministry of Information between 1939 and 1946. The MoI was established by the British government at the outbreak of the Second World War and was responsible for issuing ‘National Propaganda’ at home and abroad, as well as censoring information deemed to be of military value. Using all available modes of communication, the MoI produced films, organised radio broadcasts, issued pamphlets and posters to local authorities, published books and illustrated magazines, curated exhibitions and undertook pioneering social surveys. This website offers access to all the Home Intelligence Reports and Wartime Social Surveys which were created for the purpose of monitoring public opinion. Of special interest are the reports related to propaganda films which summarise the reaction of correspondents to films such as War in the East, Seaman Laskier Goes Back to Sea, Rush Hour and Newspaper Train, Three in a Shell Hole, Sam Pepys Joins the Navy, Royal Observer Corps and Naval Operations. This is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in how propaganda is produced and used.

    Weekly British podcast series produced and presented by the research team behind the BBC Two game show QI. Each researcher presents their favourite fact that they have come across that week, but has not made it into that week’s QI programme. The most regular presenters of the podcast are James Harkin, Andrew Hunter Murray, Anna Ptaszynski and Dan Schreiber, although other QI researchers also make appearances, and there are guest presenters on some episodes. There are over 240 ‘jolly’ episodes, each packed with ‘impressive and silly facts’ (The Guardian). For example, we may learn why the Italian film director Jesus Franco was once deemed by the Catholic Church as the most dangerous director alive or that the first sandwich was not made by the Earl of Sandwich.

    Who is the most prolific British female director? Which subjects feature in British horror films? Which countries have co-produced British feature films? These are the kinds of question we can now easily find answers for. After a few years in the making the BFI has finally published an online compilation of UK feature films released to cinemas from the beginning of film history until now. As well as presenting a broad overview of the UK film industry, the BFI have mapped other information onto each of the film titles (e.g. people and companies involved) to enrich and provide unique insights into UK film history. This information should be of interest to film buffs, journalists, researchers, or anyone with an interest in UK film and/or history. It is searchable with shareable data visualisations on a dedicated BFI Filmography web platform or record by record on via the Collections Search.
    The Filmography is a dynamic resource, and the underlying data is constantly being reviewed and updated.
