Gently Down The Stream by Martin ShermanBeau, a pianist expat living in London, meets Rufus, an eccentric young lawyer, at the dawn of the internet dating revolution. After a life spent recovering from the disappointment and hurt of loving men in a world that refused to allow it, Beau is determined to keep his expectations low with Rufus.

But Rufus comes from a new generation of gay men who believe happiness is as much their right as anyone else's, and what Beau assumed would be just another fling grows into one of the most surprising and defining relationships of his life.

Dirty Great Love Story

Richard Marsh & Katie Bonna

Dirty Great Love Story by Richard Marsh & Katie BonnaTwo hopeful, hapless romantics get drunk, get it on, and then get the hell away from each other. In her eyes, he's a mistake. A mistake who keeps turning up at parties. In his eyes, she's perfect. He's short-sighted.

This achingly funny, romantic catastrophe fuses poetry and prose to ask if a one-night stand last a lifetime.

A very human tale of good intentions and bad timing. Winner of 2012 Fringe First (for innovation and outstanding new writing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe), Dirty Great Love Story is a tale of the chance of love in a one-night stand.

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...

War Pictures: Cinema, Violence, and Style in Britain, 1939-1945

Kent Puckett

War Pictures: Cinema, Violence, and Style in Britain, 1939-1945 by Kent PuckettIn this original and engaging work, author Kent Puckett looks at how British filmmakers imagined, saw, and sought to represent its war during wartime through film. The Second World War posed unique representational challenges to Britain's filmmakers. Because of its logistical enormity, the unprecedented scope of its destruction, its conceptual status as total, and the way it affected everyday life through aerial bombing, blackouts, rationing, and the demands of total mobilization, World War II created new, critical opportunities for cinematic representation. Beginning with a close and critical...

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 Environmental Documentary: Cinema Activism in the 21st Century

John A. Duvall

The Environmental Documentary: Cinema Activism in the 21st Century by John A. DuvallThe Environmental Documentary provides the first extensive coverage of the most important environmental films of the decade, including their approach to their topics and their impacts on public opinion and political debate. While documentaries with themes of environmental activism date back at least to Pare Lorenz's films of the 1930's, no previous decade has produced the number and quality of films that engage environmental issues from an activist viewpoint. The convergence of high profile issues like climate change, fossil fuel depletion, animal abuse, and corporate malfeasance has combined...
