Humphrey Jennings and the British documentary film movement 1930–46 @ Zoom
Sep 21 @ 8:00 pm

Talk by Carol Harris. Today, few people know the name of Humphrey Jennings, but anyone who ever watched a documentary about Britain in WW2 will have seen the Spitfire roaring over the cornfield, and the young woman singing as she works in a war factory. These and other classic Jennings images mould ideas and memories of that time. In this talk, Carol Harris will look at Jennings’ life and legacy, with extracts from his films, and his own writings as well as the memories of those he worked with.

Zoom meeting details will be made available to members via our monthly e-mail news updates.

Layers of London @ Zoom
Sep 29 @ 10:30 am

Talk by Adam Corsini. Layers of London is an interactive map resource based at the University of London. The project has worked with partners including The National Archives, The British Library, London Metropolitan Archives and Historic England to gather together London’s most iconic maps and geo-reference them, enabling individuals to discover how areas have changed throughout history.

Additionally, the site encourages individuals to contribute their own content including local history, personal memories, and interesting facts to enrich the site with people’s own accounts and recollections of how areas have changed. In his talk Adam will present the site and demonstrate how it can be used and how people can get involved. The project can be accessed from layersoflondon.org.uk
