    This site archives the feminist film fanzine, or ‘video chainletter’ created by Miranda July and a network of female filmmakers during the 1990s and early 2000s. Originally called ‘Big Miss Movieola’, then changed to ‘Joanie4Jackie’ following legal threats from the owner of the Movieola brand, the project began when July issued a ‘challenge and a promise’ to other filmmakers: ‘Lady, you send me your movie and I’ll send you the latest Big Miss Moviola Chainletter Tape’. In addition to digitised versions of the chainletter tapes themselves, the site features extensive contextual material, including posters, letters, press, documentary films about the project and interviews with participants.

    This site is curated by Channel 4 News and features footage shot by Syrian filmmaker Wa’ad al Kateab during the relentless aerial bombardment of Eastern Aleppo. Aid workers and foreign journalists are unable to gain access to this part of the besieged city and it is left to local people, often citizen journalists, to bear witness to what is happening. The site features a timeline, beginning in July 2012, and offers a chronology of the conflict so far, interspersed with film showing the daily lives of Aleppo’s citizens. The stories documenting the suffering of the city’s children are particularly harrowing.

    This site presents a range of resources relating to a five year project (2013-2018) to research and document the history of British television broadcast technology from 1960 onwards. Led by Professor John Ellis of Royal Holloway, University of London, the European Research Council-funded project explores the ways in which the look and sound of the television programmes of the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s was directly affected by the technology used in the making of them.

    One of the project’s most original and inspiring ideas is to reunite industry veterans with examples of the technologies they once used and film them working with the old equipment. The resulting reconstructions have been turned into a series of videos which provide contextual material to stand alongside original archive footage and give a valuable insight into the teamwork and adaptability of the men and women working in what Professor Ellis calls ‘the heroic age of television’ . The videos are available on this site as well as the project’s YouTube channel and are available for reuse under a Creative Commons Attribution Licence.

    This database is the result of a project at the University of Hildesheim, Germany to study how interaction between people from different cultures has been portrayed in film and television. The website consists of a list of around 150 films, with brief synopsis and credits and then a selection of scenes which have been analysed according to a prescribed list of criteria, such as ‘affectivity’, ‘formality’ and ‘proxemics (space and distance orientation)'. One of the programmes analysed according to these criteria is the British television sitcom ''Allo ‘Allo!' which looks at the depiction and interaction of German, French and English stereotypes.
