Talking Pictures: Rail

32 views
Our Talking Pictures series, in collaboration with the BFI, is about screening film old and new and facilitating discussion around it. This session focused on how rail has been represented in British filmmaking through the ages. We showcased material from the rich archive of British Transport Films (the film unit of British Rail when it was a nationalised body), which is preserved by the BFI alongside contemporary films from EVCOM member film companies The Edge Picture Company and Pukka Films. The discussion looked at changing attitudes, techniques, approaches and public responses to rail, and will be facilitated by Steve Foxon, Curator of Non-Fiction at the BFI National Archive. Everyone was encouraged to join in the conversation which continued after the event at the pub around the corner.


Panellists: Alex Green (Network Rail), Paul Katis (Pukka Films), Nick Canner (The Edge Picture Company), Patrick Russell (BFI National Archive) and Steve Foxon (BFI National Archive).

This event was free to attend for EVCOM members.


This film was created by filmmaker and FOCUS Award shortlistee Montel Vernege.

Efforts to combat sites like Brian's Club are ongoing but challenging. Law enforcement agencies collaborate with cybersecurity experts to identify and shut down these illicit marketplaces, but the anonymous nature of the dark web presents significant obstacles. Moreover, the sheer volume of data being traded makes it difficult to monitor and intercept every transaction effectively. briansclub.com

In addition to these subfields, psychology encompasses many other areas of study, including health psychology, forensic psychology, and industrial-organizational psychology. Health psychology focuses on how psychological factors affect physical health and well-being, exploring issues such as stress, coping mechanisms, and the impact of lifestyle choices on health. Forensic psychology applies psychological principles to legal issues, including the assessment of criminal behavior and the evaluation of competency to stand trial. Industrial-organizational psychology examines workplace behavior and aims to improve productivity and employee well-being through the application of psychological principles.
