News just in : hear BIRSt 19 Station Manager Richard Queree’s feature ‘The Projectionists’ – selected as runner up for the Charles Parker Prize 2020. The judges summarised it as ‘social history made with a purpose’. Find out about all the 2020 winners at the CPD website.
Hear for yourself as you delve into the world of projectionists – the people who were in charge of running films at a cinema. The switch from 35mm film to digital automation saw the majority of projectionists lose their jobs; meet the people, young and old, keeping the art and love of cinema projection alive today.
Congratulations, Richard from all at BIRSt and Radio@BU. Looking forward to hearing your work on BBC Radio soon.
