There are four new exhibitions curated by students now open to visitors in the reception area of the Old Library, which houses the museum. Again these have been curated by students studying third year film module EAF 3513 British Screens, taught by the museum's curator, Dr Phil Wickham and Professor Linda Williams. The course looks at the history of the moving image in Britain throug h the museum's collections. The students choose a theme within the broad parameters of the history of the moving image in Britain, and, select the artefacts from the collection and design the display. Along with a short written piece this assignment forms 50% of their mark for the module.

This year we have displays on British Animation; Love in the Movies; Wales, Ireland and Scotland on Film; and the BBC and Channel 4. The exhibitions will be here until at least July. Thanks to the students for all their hard work.
