Experimental British television

Sometimes, synchronously, experimental aesthetics crossed genres (as for instance, with the early use of 16 mm film in the mid-1960s). Even more striking is the diachronic instability of television aesthetics across its history, due to technological and other changes. Whereas experimental film developed, addressed, and over its history returned to, a reasonably consistent set of aesthetic issues, television, over its considerably shorter history, has been

The fact that the Sunday Times launched its colour supplement in 1962 with a clutch of six people ‘who represent today’, and amongst that batch was a sociologist, tells us something about the new standing afforded to the social sciences in the 1960s. The sociologist in question was Alan Little, who built a career moving between academic posts (he was at the London School of Economics at the time of the article) and governmental roles (he later became director of Research and Statistics at the Inner London

home, mainly from Lanarkshire to Fife in the 1950s and 1960s, and many others taking longer daily journeys to work. The link between community and colliery was duly weakened, although not ultimately fractured, as the 1984–85 strike would demonstrate. The restructuring of the 1950s and 1960s reshaped the industrial politics of the coalfields, creating tensions in the new and redeveloped collieries. Workplace conflict and union militancy, key features of the pre-1947 privately owned industry, duly re-emerged, with Scottish miners prominent in major unofficial disputes

existing accounts surrounding the ‘reception’ of the Second Vatican Council by these English Catholics, and explores the ways in which these histories diverge from the analysis adopted within this book. The final section contextualises English Catholicism within a broader ‘mainstream’ historiography of the post-war period, encompassing concerns about secularisation and religious diversity, and the fundamental shifts in morality and respect for authority and tradition associated with the 1960s, as well as shifting leisure cultures and social mobility. In 1936, David

2 The literary Bond Playboy has claimed the honour of having been the first American magazine to publish a Bond story. When Ian Fleming’s short story ‘The Hildebrand Rarity’ was printed in the March 1960 issue, not only did Playboy begin its long-standing association with James Bond, but the magazine also played a vital role in extending Bond’s popularity internationally to the US. Like Playboy, Bond was a product of the 1950s, but they both came to prominence in the 1960s. In America Playboy’s newsstand sales thrived, and among other developments, Hugh Hefner

productive investment seemed to have been replaced by the identification of social policy as a cost and a drain on resources. The book is about this ideological turnaround and how the notion of the productive role of social policy has changed in the SAP’s economic and social policy discourse in the post-war period, from its ideology of the ‘strong society’ in the 1950s and 1960s, to the attempts to articulate

3 Narratives of radical lives The roots of 1960s activism and the making of the British left Celia Hughes 1960s activism and the making of the British left In 1958, 14-year-old Di Parkin accompanied her mother, a housing worker, collecting rents from council tenants in London’s Notting Hill. The middle-class teenager was shocked to see several households sharing a single outside toilet. At one address a female tenant did not know how to write her name, and had to be helped by Di’s mother to sign the form. Upon rounding a corner the teenage girl was confronted

3 Nationalism goes public You have to live through it . . . suddenly you’ve been silent for forty years . . . It’s as if a son were buried, the prodigal son, and he reappears. You know he’s there. But he has disappeared. (#12, b. 1947) If the last chapter was concerned with the development of a new clandestine Basque nationalist resistance in the 1960s, the current one examines the ways in which this movement emerged into open conflict with the Spanish state at the end of that decade. Following other studies of gender and nationalism, I argue that nationalist

introduction This book examines Tuairim (‘opinion’ in irish), an intellectual movement which was active in ireland from 1954 to 1975. Tuairim’s significance lay in the ideas put forward in the pamphlets it published as well as at the meetings it organised; these addressed several burning issues at the time, including northern ireland, electoral reform, education and censorship. This study examines Tuairim’s ideas and assesses their influence on the transformation that took place during the 1950s and 1960s. The society is important in that it was influential in

Deighton one more appropriately) with a colour supplement from the Sunday Times and a soft furnishing range from Habitat. We’ve already looked at how Mediterranean food and the theatrical flair of PizzaExpress supports the sorts of casual sociability that was becoming popular in the 1960s, and we’ve briefly seen the way that the sort of clothing produced by Biba supported a more immediate sense of fashion and being ‘with it’. This chapter turns to phenomena such as the Sunday Times Magazine and other ‘colour
