The Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI) at the University of

The topic of Media in Post-war Britain addresses a range of research in 
film, television, radio, and print media. Topics to be discussed include, 
but are not restricted to, censorship, horror films, the domestic 'Cold 
War' front, Britain and Hollywood, The Angry Young Men, permissiveness, 
British national identity in film, television and radio, metropolitan 
versus provincial cultures in film, television and radio, the 
satire  'boom', counterculture, the sense of national 'decline'. There will 
be an opening plenary on media history, and a closing plenary on the 
decline of deference in post-war Britain. There will also be a panel 
devoted to BBC history. Key speakers include Richard Collins (Open 
University), James Curran (Goldsmith's College, London), Su Harper 
(University of Portsmouth), David Hendy (University of Westminster),
