Every month, TMINE lets you know what TV the BFI will be presenting at the South Bank in London
A bit of a change from normal, in that the BFI is doing a BAFTA and releasing information about a new event with only a couple of weeks’ notice. It’s also an event that’s not actually being held at the BFI, but is to promote a Bloomsbury Publishing book, Remembering British Television: Audience, Archive and Industry:
Remembering Television: Then and Now
Bloomsbury Publishing UK
50 Bedford Square, WC1B 3DP London, United Kingdom
Timing: Doors open and complimentary drinks from 6pm. Our guests in conversation, followed by Q&A with audience members, from 6:30pm to 8:00pm.
Tickets: £15 for adults / £10 students and concessions
Step inside Bloomsbury Publishing as we ask how, when ‘television’ no longer means a box in the corner of the living room that we sit and watch together, do we keep safe the television of the past?
What is the past, present and future of television? We’re experiencing a golden age right now with new show-runners, streaming services and unique collaborations popping up every other week but how does this brave new world take its cue from all that came before? Join us as we host a wide-ranging discussion with three self-confessed telly-addicts actively working to preserve the past and inspire future generations of TV creators, producers and writers to come.
Join us as we take another look at television’s history by talking to the people who are making it their mission to keep the unforgettable moments alive for creators, researchers, writers and, most importantly, the fans. Authors of Remembering British Television, Kristyn Gorton and Joanne Garde-Hansen will be in conversation with Dr Elinor Groom, currently TV curator at the British Film Institute (BFI).
