Workers Leaving the Lumiere Factory, The Gardener, Arrival of a Train at La Ciot Station and many more are on display in Lumiere's First Picture Show; a collection of firsts from the filmakers that started a business of film production, exhibition and distribution. The acknowledged birth of film history was December 28, 1895 when the first paying audience gathered at the Grand Cafe on Boulevard des Capucines, Paris, for a performance of films on the Cinematographe of brothers Louis and Auguste Lumiere. This program is mostly reproduced from a collection of original Lumiere films unearthed in 1972 from a basement storage area in the Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History. They were copied using an original Cinematographe as a printer. The program includes twenty films from 1895-97 taken in France, four special films that were hand-colored one frame at a time, and thirteen films taken in Washington, Chicago and New York City during 1896-97 in the United States.

Tesco was the retail success story of the 90s and early 2000s. By 2007 it came close to capturing a third of the UK retail market, and was a true international retail giant - but by 2014 profits were falling and scandals were brewing. It seems the wheels came off the trolley. What went wrong? Stack 'em high... Founder Jack Cohen's aggressive growth policies in the mid 20th century set the pattern: his successors had grander plans: to make Tesco all things to all people - selling everything to all sectors of society. Branding, own-label goods, overseas expansion and technology were vital planks of its strategy. But was Tesco over-reaching itself? The Perfect Storm: The 2008 world economic crash was a signal for a profound change in the retail landscape: new discount stores could beat Tesco on price, and Tesco had acquired a reputation as a bully towards rivals and suppliers. With the horsemeat debacle and financial reporting scandals by 2014 it was "the perfect storm". Tesco had a fight-back plan, but was it enough?

Tough guise

Title from title frames.
While the social construction of femininity has been widely examined, the dominant role of masculinity has until recently remained largely invisible. Tough Guise is the first educational video to systematically examine the relationship between pop-cultural imagery and the social construction of masculine identities in the U.S. at the dawn of the 21st century. In this innovative and wide-ranging analysis, Jackson Katz argues that widespread violence in American society, including the tragic school shootings in Littleton, Colorado, Jonesboro, Arkansas, and elsewhere, needs to be understood as part of an ongoing crisis in masculinity. This exciting new media literacy tool-- utilizing racially diverse subject matter and examples-- will enlighten and provoke students (both males and females) to evaluate their own participation in the culture of contemporary masculinity.
