The Bloodiest Thing That Ever Happened In Front Of A Camera: Conservative Politics, 'Porno Chic' and Snuff

Stephen Milligen

The Bloodiest Thing That Ever Happened In Front Of A Camera: Conservative Politics, 'Porno Chic' and Snuff by Stephen MilligenHow porno chic became porno hell. In the early 1970s, outrageous claims were made of a new blood-spattered cinematic extreme. This was the legend of the 'snuff movie', which promoted the inhuman notion that a woman had been murdered to satisfy the sexual appetite of a jaded public. The story was produced by a kind of madness incarnate, but it reflected the desperation of America in cultural turmoil. 'Snuff' was a backlash against the naïve liberalism of the counterculture, embraced by people who preferred to believe the worst about their society. Once unleashed the concept was embraced and...

Are You In The House Alone? A TV Movie Compendium 1964-1999

Amanda Reyes

Are You In The House Alone? A TV Movie Compendium 1964-1999 by Amanda ReyesBeginning in the 1960s through its heyday in the 1970s and beyond, the telefilm remains an important cultural artefact masquerading as disposable entertainment. Made specifically for the small screen, within the tight constraints of broadcasting standards, what these humble movies lacked in budget and star appeal, they made up for in other ways. Often they served as an introduction to genre films, particularly horror, mirroring their theatrical counterparts with a focus on sinister cults, women in prison, haunted houses and even animals in revolt. They were also a place to address serious contemporary...

Dr Brent's Casebook - An Unauthorised Guide to Police Surgeon by Alan Hayes & Richard McGinlayThe series that launched a career and inspired a television legend. The cases of POLICE SURGEON uncovered, described and explored! Dr Brent's Casebook tells the story of Police Surgeon, a short-lived 1960 television series that gave Ian Hendry (The Lotus Eaters, Get Carter) his first regular starring role. It made its mark in TV history not for what it was but for what it led to - the world beating show The Avengers. Unlike its illustrious successor, Police Surgeon has faded from public memory and has rarely been revisited for the purposes of research or retrospective celebration. Richard McGinlay...

Sea Fret

Tallulah Brown

Sea Fret by Tallulah BrownThe sea took my house and not yours, everything's different for me.

Rising sea levels are threatening the ground beneath her house, but Ruby is distracted. She wants one final blowout before her best friend, Lucy, leaves for University.

With the local community in favour of letting nature take its course, Ruby must choose: follow Lucy inland or stay and help her father hold back the tide.

Sea Fret is about erosion - the collapse of friendship, family and home.

Tallulah Brown's play is a paean to her native Suffolk coastline. It received its world premiere at the Old Red Lion Theatre, London, on...

Television on Demand: Curatorial Culture and the Transformation of TV

MJ Robinson

Television on Demand: Curatorial Culture and the Transformation of TV by MJ RobinsonSince 2010 "curationÂ?? has become a marketing buzzword. Wrenched from its traditional home in the world of high art, everything from food to bed linens to dog toys now finds itself subject to this formerly rarified activity. Most of the time the term curation is being inaccurately used to refer to the democratization of choice Â? an inevitable development and side effect of the economics of long tail distribution. However, as any true curator will tell you Â? curation is so much more than choosing Â? it relies upon human intelligence, agency, evaluation and carefully considered criteria...

The group consisted of four Bronx friends and school mates who went on to become doo-wop legends with memorable hits "Teenager in Love," "Where or When," and "I Wonder Why." Differences in music preferences caused them to break up and go separate ways. Dion would score several top ten hits like "Runaround Sue," "The Wanderer," "Ruby Baby," and "Abraham, Martin and John." The Belmonts would hit the charts with "Come On Little Angel," "Don't Get Around Much...

Improvising Out Loud: My Life Teaching Hollywood How to Act

Jeff Corey & Emily Corey

Improvising Out Loud: My Life Teaching Hollywood How to Act by Jeff Corey & Emily Corey

Jeff Corey (1914--2002) made a name for himself in the 1940s as a character actor in films like Superman and the Mole Men (1951), Joan of Arc (1948), and The Killers (1946). Everything changed in 1951, when he was summoned before the House Un-American Activities Committee. Corey refused to name names and was promptly blacklisted, which forced him to walk away from a vibrant livelihood as an actor and embark on a career as one of the industry's most revered acting instructors.

In Improvising Out Loud: My Life Teaching Hollywood How to Act, Corey recounts his extraordinary story. Among the actors...
