WOMEN, WORK & YOUTH CULTURE BETWEEN THE WARS
In her book Young Women, Work, And Family In England 1918-1950, Dr Selina Todd Lecturer in History at the University of Warwick traces the complex interaction between class, gender, and locale that shaped young women's roles at work and home between the end of the First World War and the beginning of the fifties.

While contemporaries commonly portrayed young women as pleasure-loving leisure consumers Selina argues that the world of work was in fact central to their life experiences and examines how social and economic history are woven together in the working, family, and social lives of the maids, factory workers, shop assistants, and clerks who made up the majority of England's young women.

THE WILDLIFE DOCUMENTARY
Laurie Taylor looks at how the camera, high production values and the BBC Natural History unit have shaped our relationship with the natural world.

Dr Nils Lindahl-Elliot, author of Mediating Nature and Senior Lecturer in Cultural Studies, University of the West of England discusses how natural history documentaries mediate our relationship with the nature alongside Dr Meryl Aldridge, Reader in the Sociology of News Media, School of Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Nottingham.
