    This free iTunes podcast is presented by Camille Chevalier-Karfis who, in each podcast, reads a French poem twice: once slowly, so that the listener can repeat the lines, and then at a more natural reading pace. She also speaks about the life of the poet, the poem’s language and vocabulary and analyses the text in clear, everyday French. The full text of the poems, as well as much more material - including audiobooks and language lessons - is available to paying subscribers on Chevalier-Karfis’s French Today website, which also includes a blog about French culture, travel, language, humour and cuisine.

    Academics from the University of Nottingham’s School of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies present a series of short videos based on a single word which is significant to their research. The site’s homepage presents the words as a kind of crossword puzzle grid, presumably to represent the interdisciplinary nature of the School. The user clicks on a word - Huguenot, Biscuit or Interstitial, to name but three - and is taken to the video in question. Like other sites designed by Brady Haran, this one features a simple, stylish, slightly quirky approach which allows the enthusiasm of the academics to come across, without obscuring or trivialising the seriousness of their research.

    This French website is dedicated to the work of Jean Painlevé whose collected oeuvre of over 200 films is represented here in a selection of extracts along with stills, examples of Painlevé's photographic work, a timeline, texts (in French) and links to other sites. Painlevé is best known for his aquatic nature films, which, with their blend of science and surrealism have come to occupy their own genre: the ‘scientific poetic’ film. Less well-known is the remarkable clay animation film Barbe Bleue (1936 - 1938), produced by Painlevé and animated by Réne Bertrand, with music by Maurice Jaubert, represented here in a clip which, although brief, shows the 1995 restoration of the film in its vivid Gasparcolor glory.
