So once again this summer, I’ve been delving into the film archives. The BFI commissioned me for a second year to handle the PR for Britain on Film in Wales.
Britain on Film is one of the most significant film archive projects ever undertaken by the BFI and encompasses content from the BFI National Archive and the UK’s nine national and regional Screen Archives. And this summer, more than 750 films looking at Rural Life from 1900 to 1999 have been released online, many unseen since they were first shown.
The highlights? A full page in the Western Mail’s Saturday Magazine, a piece on BBC News Wales Online as well as interviews on Radio Wales’ Good Morning Wales and a 20 minute slot on Radio Cymru. Coverage also featured across across the Radio Wales Arts Show, Made in Cardiff TV and local and regional media including the Daily Post and South Wales Evening Post. Features on ITV Wales News and S4C’s Heno are expected later this month.
