    Cosmic Shambles creates and curates entertaining content about the universe through science, art, history, philosophy, music, literature and comedy. The site was borne out of The Incomplete Map of Cosmic Genome, Utter Shambles and Book Shambles online magazines. A selection of the content from them is now available for free via Cosmic Shambles, but to access the entire back catalogue, which includes over 160 films, exclusive interviews and contributions from 150 well-known names in science, a paid subscription is needed. The free content in the Cosmic Shambles site is presented in the form of podcasts, documentaries, interviews and several blogs. The range of subjects covered is impressive. For example, neuroscientist Dr Dean Burnett explains differences in taste (why some of us love jazz and other hate it?); the life and work of physicist Richard Feynman is celebrated in the documentary All Genius, All Buffoon: 100 Years of Richard Feynman; there is also an in-depth interview with plastic surgeon Fiona Wood who invented the ‘spray on skin’ for burns victims.

    A free online platform designed to provide advanced researchers with the open climate data, visualizations and resources they need to gather insights on national and global progress on climate change. The platform, managed by the World Resource Institute, brings together dozens of datasets for the first time and allows users to analyse and compare the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement, access historical emissions data, discover how countries can leverage their climate goals to achieve their sustainable development objectives, and use models to map new pathways to a lower carbon. The site can be searched by Countries, Economic sector, Nationally Determined Contribution, Global Historical Gas Emissions and Future Scenarios, where users can model projections of emissions.

    A celebration of all things British television from Greg Bakun, an American collector of British television programmes. The website started as a blog where Bakun would write about a randomly selected programme from his own archive. The site has now evolved and offers a series of podcasts on the same subject but with an emphasis on television preservation, restoration and missing material. Episodes so far include an interview with Chris Perry, CEO of Kaleidoscope, a celebration of Tony Hancock, which presents rare audio recording clips from his shows, and an interview with Sue Malden, the first ever BBC Archive selector. Although not easy to find, the site also includes reviews of DVDs.

    Blog written by Alistair Nunn in order to record his thoughts and observations as he watches all of the productions in the BBC Shakespeare television series (broadcast between 3 December 1978 and 27 April 1985) in the order in which they were transmitted. Nunn wants to see how well the productions have stood the test of time, as well as to see how filming techniques changed over the series seven years’ span and what effect this had - if any - on the acting and directing styles. Nunn’s comments - which are usually extensive - are always interesting, and although often forthright when it comes to productions he does not enjoy, he generally offers a balanced and sensitive analysis.

    Clovis Salmon - aka Sam the Wheels - is a first generation Jamaican migrant who arrived in the UK in the 1950s. Between the 1960s and the 1980s Salmon filmed the everyday life of the Caribbean community in Brixton, making him one of the first black documentary filmmakers in Britain. This site is a participatory arts project featuring digitised footage from Salmon’s personal archives as well as numerous video interviews with Brixtonians, including gay rights activists, anarchist squatters, rectors, artists, Rastafarians and dub poet Linton Kwesi Johnson. The site appears not to have been maintained for some time but most of the videos are still playing out.

    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. Reconstructions include, 16mmm filming preparation, which shows how a typical television film crew went about the task of filming footage, 16mm editing cutting technique, which shows how television film editors organised and assembled raw footage (rushes) using a variety of editing machines and techniques 16mm film processing, in which laboratory staff demonstrate the various skills and methods used to process exposed negative films.
