  • 3/4 David Bomberg: Prophet in No Mans Land - British Art At War

    15:05


    First broadcast: Sept 2014,
    Episode 3/3 In the years preceding 1914, David Bomberg, Walter Sickert and Paul Nash set out to paint a new world, but, as the century unfolded, found themselves working in the rubble.

    David Bomberg is now recognised as the most startlingly original British painter of his generation, but died in obscurity more than half a century ago.

    A Jewish immigrant from London's east end, his early modernist works pushed art to its limits. Fighting at the Somme, David Bomberg watched the world splinter and fall apart just like the works of art he had created. Bomberg spent the rest of his life searching for order in an increasingly disordered world, and his wanderings took him as far as Palestine, before he settled at the end of his life in Ronda, Spain.

    When he died in 1957, embattled and in poverty, he seemed to be no more than a footnote in the history of British art. However, the works that survive David Bomberg tell their own story. Combative and iconoclastic, he remains the most elusively original British painter of the 20th century.

    We always have to keep in mind that a Documentary, after all, can tell lies and it can tell lies because it lays claim to a form of veracity which fiction doesn't. Some of the documentaries are made just to discredit some particular person, party, organization, system etc, but most of them here on TDF are non biased, without prejudice and worth watching.

    What Happened to Howard Hughes' Money After He Died


    J.P. Morgan and His Giant, Knobbly, Purple Nose


    In this video:

    Howard Hughes, the legendarily reclusive billionaire business magnate, is a man about whom much has been written and most people know at least a little bit about. However, as we did when we covered JP Morgan’ giant, purple, knobbly nose that he largely managed to keep hidden from the world, today we’re going to focus on a lesser known aspect of the life of Howard Hughes-specifically the time he bought an entire TV station so that he could watch his favourite movies whenever he wanted.

    In this video:

    It was a cool California November afternoon in 1947 when the HK-4 Hercules, also known as the Spruce Goose, finally flew. It was supposed to be a simple taxi test, nothing more than motoring through the water of Long Beach Harbor to show off its speed and test out the plane in open water. But having endured years of people mocking the project and himself for trying to build a plane so massive it had no hope of flying, Howard Hughes decided to take the opportunity to extend his middle finger at them all in the most poignant way he could.

  • Book Trailer Hidden Genius Biography of Frank Calvin Mann 1908-1992

    2:12

    Frank Mann had the deck stacked against him from the very start. A Black child born to an unwed mother in 1908 Texas didn't have much hope of becoming a success in life. But in 1919, on a dusty Houston airfield, young Frank met a kindred soul, a boy named Howard Hughes. It was the start of a lifelong relationship, and together, these two men helped revolutionize the world with their unique inventions and designs.

    However, because Frank was Black, he did not always receive the credit he deserved and few people today know of his accomplishments.

    Book Trailer for 'Hidden Genius' tells the little known story of a talented aeronautical and aerospace engineer, award winning sports car designer, soldier of fortune, U.S. Army officer in WWII, and primary civilian flight instructor for the famed Tuskegee Airmen.

  • NETWORK, Sidney Lumet, 1976 - Im Mad As Hell and Im Not Gonna Take This Anymore!

    4:02

    NETWORK now streaming on FilmStruck

    Howard Beale (Peter Finch), an acclaimed anchor at the UBS Evening News, is put out to pasture because he too old. News division president Max Schumacher (William Holden), Howard's best friend, is forced to deliver the decision. Beale can't stomach the idea of losing his 25-year post as anchorman simply because of age, so in his next broadcast he announces to the viewers that he's going to commit suicide on his final program. The network wants Beale immediately fired, but Schumacher gives him a chance to apologize on the air. What he doesn't count on is Beale using this camera time to go off on another tirade that to everyone's surprise resonates with the audience. Seeing an opportunity to harness Beale's mad as hell energy, the head of programming, Diana Christensen (Faye Dunaway), suggests Beale be given his own show. Although Max and Diana disagree on this business proposal, they initiate a personal relationship that complicates matters further. Driven by her tireless efforts to succeed, Diana drives Max away as Beale's show becomes more crazed. And as those working in media know, fans are fickle and when Beale's ratings drop, Diana and the network execs cancel his show permanently.

  • Don Watson

    57:48

    Famously employed as Paul Keating’s speechwriter, Don Watson reflects on ten years since the publication of his acclaimed biography, Recollections of a Bleeding Heart. Watson is joined by former journalist and speechwriter James Button.

    On its release, Watson’s memoir was widely deemed a masterpiece, at once a groundbreaking ‘insider’ account of politics and a profound and extraordinarily frank study of the most intriguing and visionary politician in Australia’s modern history. Now, when vision and character have all but vanished from politics, Don Watson’s Recollections makes absorbing – and essential – reading.

    In this session, Watson again reflects on his time with Keating and admits he can understand, from his former employer’s perspective, the strained relationship they’ve enjoyed since the release of his book. He considers the importance of narrative in politics and tracks the shift in Labor’s style and fortune from Keating’s 1996 election defeat to its present leadership under Julia Gillard.

    After their successes in North Africa, the Allied powers debated long and hard over the next stage of the war. With Stalin calling for relief in the East and Churchill grumbling in the West, the decision was made to pursue the fleeing Axis forces across the Mediterranean and invade the Island of Sicily. But with D-Day still more than a year distant, many fundamental questions had yet to be answered about the nature of amphibious warfare. One wrong move, and thousands of lives could be lost in the treacherous waters around Sicily. Join us as we examine this first great foray across the Mediterranean, the precursor to so many other successful amphibious operations that would be crucial to the liberation of Europe.

    In the Western world, only since the mid-18th century has it been possible to discuss ethical questions publicly without referring to Christianity. Modern thinking about morality, which assumes that gods do not exist, or at least do not intervene, is in its infancy. But the ancient Greeks and Romans elaborated robust philosophical schools of ethical thought for more than a millennium, from the first professed agnostics such as Protagoras (fifth century BCE) to the last pagan thinkers. The Platon...

  • Forwards and Backwards: Architecture in inter-war England - Dr Simon Thurley

    1:1:06

    The First World War brought far reaching changes to England. These included a huge expansion of the suburbs, the massive growth of motoring and a debate about how England should look in the future. This was not a simple battle between conservationists and developers; it was a search for the soul of England.

    This is a part of the lecture series, English Architecture: Into the Modern World.
    Simon Thurley's four lectures complete his survey of English building from the Saxons to the present day. The theme is modernity and tradition. This is the story of how British architects struggled to find an architectural language that met the needs and aspirations of a society in a state of rapid change while negotiating deep and popular traditions and beliefs. Two World Wars shook the nation producing the seemingly contradictory emotions of nostalgia and progress. Out of this has come the world in which we live.

    The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website:


    Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download from our website. There are currently nearly 1,500 lectures free to access or download from the website.

    - Follow Us!

    As the world is patiently waiting for the release of Christopher Nolan's last Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises many of us are wondering what is up next for the talented director. With Nolan's track record for making uber successful films with not only the Batman movies but also his last film Inception it's safe to guess that the 41 year old director can now make pretty much any film he wants. Unfortunately as to what that film may be will remain a secret for some time so for now we can only guess as to what he has planned next. We do know that Mr. Nolan has wanted to make a Howard Hughes biopic for quite some time now and it was believed that this was true after it was reported that Nolan was using Michael Dronsin's Citizen Hughes: The Power, the Money and the Madness as source material for a new iteration. But in his recent interview with Empire Magazine Nolan revealed that the Hughes project has been lifted off the table. It's a shame because there's no doubt Nolan would have been able to tell the story of the fascinating billionaire in a way we've never seen before. But once again the question as to what he has next still remains a mystery. One possibility that Nolan commented on was perhaps directing a Bond movie sometime down the road. He revealed that he has always been a fan of the series even mentioning Bond as a huge influence to both Batman Begins and Inception. In the interview Nolan reiterates his interest in the project saying that It would have to be the right situation and the right time in their cycle of things. Meaning if he got a hold of the series he would most likely want to start completely new, including replacing Daniel Craig as the leading role. I'm sure whatever Nolan decides to tackle next will be great but until then we all have to patiently wait for his next move. Check out Nolan's interview in Empire Magazine out now and don't forget to go and see The Dark Knight Rises out July 20th!
    But for now we want to know what you guys would like to see Nolan take on next. Let us know below!

  • An Evening with STEPHEN FRIED, Author of Rush

    1:4:15

    On November 6, 2019, the Midtown Scholar Bookstore welcomed bestselling author Stephen Fried to Harrisburg to discuss his new book, Rush: Revolution, Madness, and Benjamin Rush, the Visionary Doctor Who Became a Founding Father.

    Signed copies of Rush are available in-store and online while supplies last.

    About the Book:

    The monumental life of Benjamin Rush, medical pioneer and one of our most provocative and unsung Founding Fathers.

    By the time he was thirty, Dr. Benjamin Rush had signed the Declaration of Independence, edited Common Sense, toured Europe as Benjamin Franklin’s protégé, and become John Adams’s confidant, and was soon to be appointed Washington’s surgeon general. And as with the greatest Revolutionary minds, Rush was only just beginning his role in 1776 in the American experiment.

    As the new republic coalesced, he became a visionary writer and reformer; a medical pioneer whose insights and reforms revolutionized the treatment of mental illness; an opponent of slavery and prejudice by race, religion, or gender; an adviser to, and often the physician of, America’s first leaders; and “the American Hippocrates.” Rush reveals his singular life and towering legacy, installing him in the pantheon of our wisest and boldest Founding Fathers.

    About the Author:

    Stephen Fried is an award-winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author who teaches at Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and the University of Pennsylvania. He is, most recently, the author of the historical biography Appetite for America, and the coauthor, with Congressman Patrick Kennedy, of A Common Struggle. His earlier books include the biography Thing of Beauty: The Tragedy of Supermodel Gia and the investigative books Bitter Pills and The New Rabbi. A two-time winner of the National Magazine Award, Fried has written frequently for Vanity Fair, GQ, The Washington Post Magazine, Rolling Stone, Glamour, and Philadelphia Magazine. He lives in Philadelphia with his wife, author Diane Ayres.

  • Queer women artists in the Harlem Renaissance | #LGBTHM

    13:35

    For #LGBTHistoryMonth in the UK, I look into some revolutionary queer women Harlem artists, including the blues singers Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey, and Gladys Bentley, and the writers Nella Larsen and Angelina Weld Grimke. I hope you find it as interesting as I do!

    Music used:
    Eubie Blake, 'Dream Rag'.
    James P Johnson, 'The Dream'.
    George Hannah, 'The Boy in the Boat'
    Memphis Willie B, 'Bad Girls Blues'
    Gertrude Ma Rainey, 'Prove It On Me Blues'
    Gladys Bentley, 'Worried Blues'
    I don't claim to own any of this music - I'm using them according to fair use terms.

    THE BLUES
    A playlist for all the songs mentioned and others:

    This website is a bit difficult to navigate, but it is made with love and is an excellent source for queer music:

    History of the lesbian anthem 'Bull Dyker's Dream':

    More information about the life of Gladys Bentley:

    A good book on Harlem Blues and performers, and how they relate to the ideologies of the time is 'The Scene of Harlem Cabaret' by Shane Vogel.

    LITERATURE
    'Strange Brother' by Blair Niles is difficult to find but an excellent depiction of general (queer) life in Harlem.

    A good general starter book for the literature of the period is 'The Portable Harlem Renaissance Reader' edited by David Levering Lewis

    Nella Larsen's 'Passing', Richard Bruce Nugent's 'Smoke, Lillies, and Jade', and stories by Angelina Weld Grimke can all be found in 'Ebony Rising: Short Fiction of the Greater Harlem Renaissance Era' edited by Craig Gable. This can be found online and you wouldn't have much trouble finding the individual stories elsewhere online either.

    Grimke's poetry can be a little more difficult to track down. There is a 'Selected Works' edited by Gloria Hull, but it doesn't seem to be available in many libraries and costs min. £40. If anyone ever fancies getting me a generous birthday present though… ;)

    A large portion of Grimké's published poetry is found in 'Carolling Dusk: An anthology of verse by Black poets of the twenties’ (1927) edited by Countee Cullen, and this is a hella cool collection anyway. Also available online.

    For her previously unpublished poetry, a fair amount is online (e.g. and Lillian Faderman’s ‘Chloe Plus Olivia: An Anthology of Lesbian Literature from the Seventeenth Century to Present’ has a fair few of them. That’s a great book for queer women writing with excellent introductions, so I’d recommend it in general; I got my copy for £4 second hand.

    If you have any questions, would like any more tips on where to find material, or just want to gush about queer Harlem for a bit, comment below or tweet me @izzyinkpen.

    Finally, thanks must go to my amazing professor Juliette Atkinson for giving an incredible seminar introducing me to all this stuff.
