    The BBC has created a Reith Lectures microsite. At present 194 broadcasts are available, with the earliest recording being Frank Fraser Darling’s broadcasts from 1969. The Reith Lectures were inaugurated in 1948 by the BBC to mark the historic contribution made to public service broadcasting by Sir John (later Lord) Reith, the corporation’s first director-general. The very first Reith lecturer was the philosopher, Bertrand Russell who spoke on ‘Authority and the Individual’. Among his successors were Arnold Toynbee (The World and the West, 1952), Robert Oppenheimer (Science and the Common Understanding, 1953) and J.K. Galbraith (The New Industrial State, 1966). More recently, the Reith lectures have been delivered by the Chief Rabbi, Dr Jonathan Sacks (The Persistence of Faith, 1990), Jean Aitchison (The Language Web, 1996), Patricia J. Williams (Race and Race Relations, 1997), John Keegan (War and Our World, 1998) Anthony Giddens (Runaway World, 1999) and Onora O’Neill (A Question of Trust, 2002).

    Databases

    Derived in part from the resource known as Artifact, a hub of the Resource Discovery Network (RDN), this excellent guide to websites on the ‘arts and creative industries’, provides helpful but not overwordy site descriptions and useful background material including an artists’ index and news features. NB Intute closed in July 2011 and the site has now been archived. No further resources are being added and no changes are being made to existing content, so the resource will increasingly become less useful and reliable.

    The archive offers a complete database and on-line video streaming of all 450 films made by the film department of Arts Council England between 1953 and 1998 and several films produced before 2003 by the dance Department of ACE. The films are available in digital form as the result of a three-year project by the University of Westminster and access is free of charge to UK further and higher education institutions. The collection provides a unique record of British and international post-war art, as well as of documentary film-making in the UK. Many titles in the collection contain rare material about individual artists, while others offer definitive coverage of their subject. Artists featured include Bacon, Spencer, Hockney, Moore and the Young British Artist (YBA) group. Some of the best filmmakers in the UK, including Anthony Minghella and Isaac Julien, were commissioned to make films for the collection. As well as focusing on individual artists, architects, writers and poets, the films document particular art movements that have continued to influence contemporary British Art, such as Surrealism, Dadaism, Futurism and Kinetic art.
