Die Website Screenonline, 2003 vom British Film Institute (BFI) begründet, bietet Informationen zur Film- und Fernsehgeschichte Großbritanniens und dem damit verbundenen sozialkulturellen Wandel des Landes:
In the Film section you will find groups of films united by a common theme: From cherished favourites to unfamiliar gems, from the mainstream to the downright weird, we celebrate the huge variety of British cinema. Like the rest of BFI Screenonline, these sections are growing all the time, so if what you’re looking for isn’t here now, it may be on its way. In the meantime, browse around – you’re sure to find something interesting.
In the Television section you will find TV programmes grouped by theme. While British cinema has had to struggle to compete with mighty Hollywood, our television industry has long been the envy of the world. Find out how here. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, remember we’re adding new material all the time. In the meantime, have a look around.
Our People section includes hundreds of entries on key personalities from Britain’s film and television industries, both in front of and behind the camera. Many of our authoritative biographies have been licensed from The Encyclopedia of British Cinema (ed. Brian McFarlane, Methuen, 2003) and from Directors in British and Irish Cinema: A reference companion (ed. Robert Murphy, BFI, 2006). Others have been specially written for BFI Screenonline.
BFI Screenonline Tours offer an introductory guide to a particular area of British film or television history. They include video clips and other media materials as well as education resources and suggestions for classroom work. More recent tours feature specially-made short videos including interviews with filmmakers, actors and film experts.
You can find further lesson ideas and other resources aimed at students and teachers in the Education section.
Der Zugriff auf einige Bereiche des Audio- und Videomaterials ist nur britischen Bibliotheken und Bildungseinrichtungen vorbehalten; Informationen über Nutzungsmöglichkeiten außerhalb Großbritanniens finden Sie hier.
