    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.

    The outcome of a research project led by the University of Warwick, this site investigates the history of cinematic projection, the role and image of the cinema projectionist, and the contemporary expansion of projected images and events outside the cinema. It uses a mixture of methods, including oral history, archive research, interviews, textual analysis, photographs and short films to document and explore film projection and the digital transformations of the twenty-first century. The site is organised into four main categories: Virtual Projection Box, which enables the interactive exploration of a projection room; Changing Technology-Changing Work, a tour showing the ways in which technological developments have changed the projectionist’s job; Exploring the Box, which highlights the key features of a 1910s projection room; Women in the Box, about the work of women projectionists across the history of cinema. Highlights include: a film demonstrating the flammability of different types of film stock; an audio clip about adapting to digital projection technologies, and a short news item depicting a ‘projectionette’ showing films for a wartime audience.
