Tristram Powell with Tanya Harrod

We had another full house for our latest film night, The Way We Saw Ourselves. Hosted by Tristram Powell and his guest, Tanya Harrod, we were introduced (or in some cases reminded), of some of the great British documentary films or the 1930s and 40s. The technical and artistic skills of the filmmakers have left a legacy that is as watchable now as when they were made despite the underlying propaganda message which can seem a bit obvious and sometime comical to the 21st century viewer.

We hope to repeat this event in the spring for anyone who missed it the first time round so keep and eye on the events page and make sure you're signed up for our newsletter.
