Promotional Film for '1839: The Chartist Insurrection' - by David Black and Chris Ford
PROMOTIONAL FILM FOR ‘1839: THE CHARTIST INSURRECTION’ – BY DAVID BLACK AND CHRIS FORD
This film was first shown at the book launch for 1839: The Chartist Insurrection, by David Black and Chris Ford, on 18th May 2012 at the Workers’ Educational Association, Clifton Street, London.
There is also a Foreword to the book, by John McDonnell MP.
I bought a copy of the book at the launch and finished reading it about an hour ago. It’s an accessible, well-researched and exciting book. It has a narrative style which the general reader, or those with little knowledge of Chartism, should find appealing. The many illustrations and the well-crafted covers (back and front) add to its aesthetic appeal. It is especially useful for history teachers (for GCSE and above) and A-level and undergraduate history, politics and sociology students. I will be using parts of it for my History of Childhood module and a new module I aim to develop on the History of Education. This is an important book, and deserves to be widely read --- Glenn Rikowski, London, 26th May 2012.
The promotional video, ‘1839: The Chartist Insurrection’ (which is also excellent for history teachers and students) can be viewed at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JydjP23QAVc
Music to the film was by David Black. It was produced by Go Canny Films.
