representations in the mind, via the infant’s everyday experience and interaction with objects. It was only behaviourists that challenged this theory, but as they had no replacement model for the development of subjectivity, all they could offer were criticisms rather than an alternative. However, by the 1960s, shifts began to take place that encouraged the development of new theories of

throughout the 1960s and 1970s took place in the context of dramatic changes in British society. Changing leisure patterns, demographic shifts, the growth of consumer culture, television, and new broadcast technologies like video and satellite all compounded the decline in cinema-going and a corresponding contraction of the cinema infrastructure. The period is one in which cinema exhibitors sought to distinguish the silver screen from the

’s departure in 1961. Whilst viewers were migrating to ITV in large numbers, one police series was standing firm. Dixon of Dock Green represented one of the BBC’s few drama successes of the late 1950s and early 1960s, attracting audiences of ‘10 million by the middle of 1957’ (Cooke 2015a : 52). By the first quarter of 1961 Dixon was the second most popular programme of

In the 1960s, there were isolated examples of horror radio, such as J. L. Galloway’s ‘The Dark’ (29 July 1962) produced by John Tydeman. This is a thirty-minute drama which presents, from the perspective of a ship, a storm that has raged for six weeks and, centrally, a lighthouse in which the two stranded keepers’ irritation with each other grows into murderous contempt

Stories from modern nomads

On the global stage the British diaspora, proportionate to its population, remains one of the largest. This book is the first social history to explore experiences of British emigrants from the peak years of the 1960s to the emigration resurgence of the turn of the twentieth century. It explores migrant experiences in Australia, Canada and New Zealand alongside other countries. The book charts the gradual reinvention of the 'British diaspora' from a postwar migration of austerity to a modern migration of prosperity. It is divided into two parts. First part presents a decade-by-decade chronology of changes in migration patterns and experience, progressing gradually from the postwar migration of austerity to a more discretionary mobility of affluence. It discusses 'pioneers of modern mobility'; the 1970s rise in non-white migration and the decline of British privilege in the old Commonwealth countries of white settlement; 'Thatcher's refugees' and cosmopolitanism and 'lifestyle' migration. Second part shifts from a chronological to a thematic focus, by drilling down into some of the more prominent themes encountered. It explores the interplay of patterns of change and continuity in the migrant careers of skilled workers, trade unionists, professionals and mobile academics. The push and pull of private life, migration to transform a way of life, and migrant and return experiences discussed highlight the underlying theme of continuity amidst change. The long process of change from the 1960s to patterns of discretionary, treechange and nomadic migration became more common practice from the end of the twentieth century.

Billboard magazine’s top five places. 2 Through their recordings, movies, live performances, and other public utterances and appearances, the Beatles had a profound effect on American culture and society throughout the 1960s. Cultural exchange has, of course, long been a facet of Anglo-American relations. In the twentieth century, cultural flows tended to travel predominantly from west to east, reflecting the dominance of the United States in new popular forms such as motion pictures and popular music. 3 The traffic was never one way, however.

The novísimos and the cultural transition (mid-1960s–1980) The poetry written in Spain in the 1970s, the starting point of this anthology, is a clear departure from the poetic tradition that immediately preceded it. Towards the final stages of Franco’s dictatorship, and as early as the end of the 1960s, a certain air of change was evident and manifested itself in the works of young Spanish poets. The changes that were slowly starting to take place, namely economic developments due to tourism and significant foreign investments, and the passing of vital Planes de

Pepla and politics: the emergence of a television genre (1960s) Part II As noted in Part I, Graeco-Roman and biblical epics gained popularity in cinema in the 1950s and early 1960s to counter the apparent threat of television. Epics set in antiquity were particularly equipped to offer cinema audiences what television could not – large sets, sweeping panoramic views of ancient landscapes, crowds of extras and brightly coloured costumes and decorations. In other words, ‘Hollywood’s reaction [to the threat of television] was to seek to do things not open to the

5 ‘The war has done strange things to you’ – trauma in the 1960s and 1970s As medic, Rat Kiley carried a canvas satchel filled with morphine and plasma and malaria tablets and surgical tape and comic books. (Tim O’Brien, The Things They Carried, 1990) America was both a source and subject of traumatic violence in the 1960s and 1970s. The violence of these decades was such that Adam Lowenstein positions contemporary discourse as indicative of a nation verging on ‘tearing itself in half’ over a series of increasingly polarized and contested divisions.1 The prime
