April news from the Centre.

Dr Stephanie Roberts was commissioned to write the miscarriage of justice section for Westlaw's legal encyclopaedia, Insight. This was recently published and is available to download in PDF format.

The Regent Street Cinema is due to formally open in May. In advance a series of dress rehearsals were held and the Centre was delighted to be involved with one of these. Following a screening of the 1973 classic Don’t Look Now, Guy Osborn conducted a Q&A with Lucy Brett, Head of Education at the British Board of Film Classification in front of an appreciative audience. The Cinema looked great and we look forward to more collaborations with both Regent Street Cinema and the BBFC in the future. See our March news for details of one of our previous collaborations with the BBFC, the ‘Classified’ exhibition, and also the BBFC/BFI book Behind the Scenes at the BBFC to which two Centre members contributed.

The videos from our Football Intermediaries event, details of which are available in March news, are now available. See the videos below, arranged by participant:
