Tonight's show: History in Film

History and film have been inextricably linked since movie pioneers first shot footage of workers leaving factory gates and trains entering stations. In tonight's show Alex Fitch explores the nature of history as a topic for film and the use of historical footage in films. The first half of the show is a discussion with James DeCarteret, Mark Stafford and Alison Goldie about recent films that depict and / or include historical events such as Hollywoodland and Nick Broomfield's Ghosts and then Alex discusses the genre with Dr. Toby Haggith, the head of cinema programming at the Imperial War Museum, London.

10.30pm Resonance 104.4 FM / streamed at and will be available to podcast here soon after. This site is available both in HTML or as an RSS feed...
