Now and Then
A series of films which recently aired on ITV News Anglia. Presenter Jonathan Wills trawled their extensive archive looking at some of the programmes based on the regions’ waterways produced by Anglia over nearly 60 years. From the problems of drought and flooding, a doomsday scenario facing the Broads back in the 1970s, the vessels that use them and some of the presenters who brought the stories into our homes, Jonathan looked at the questions being asked then and brought them right up to date.
Sounding Coastal Change
A short film and sound pieces exploring our coastline, in this project from the Open University.
Can sound help us think about environmental change? This exhibition showcases film and sound work exploring change on the North Norfolk Coast. Sound conveys thoughts and feelings sometimes difficult to put into words. It allows the many voices of people and environments to be expressed together. Sound encourages us to think about human experiences of time and the rhythms and thresholds of environmental change. Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the project team work with sound, music and different kinds of listening, to explore how the coast is changing and how people’s lives are changing with it.
