BFI Mediatheque

On a walk at lunch I decided to go in the BFI on the off chance that they had some spare Larry David talk tickets, they never (it got cancelled due to the ash cloud) but I decided to go into the Mediatheque for the first time.

BFI Southbank’s Mediatheque is the place to explore the BFI National Archive, for free.

I watched a short apocolyptic animation from 1956 called A Short Vision by Joan Foldes and Peter Foldes. I took a few images, you should have a look if you get time as there’s a whole range of bits from BFIs library. I took some of the details from their site about using it at the bottom.

Mediatheque entrance

Using the BFI Mediatheque is easy – turn up on the day or book a viewing session in advance. Check in at the desk inside the mediatheque and then log on to a viewing station. Proof of age may be required, as only age-appropriate material is made available to younger users.

FIRST THEY GO BANKRUPT. THEN THEY SET THEMSELVES ON FIRE. ICELAND. INSURANCE JOB?

Whilst walking along the South Bank during my lunch break I often see these guys making sand sculptures. The other day this message made me laugh:

FIRST THEY GO BANKRUPT. THEN THEY SET THEMSELVES ON FIRE. ICELAND. INSURANCE JOB?

What funny a funny sand sculptor until I looked at site and then ventured to twitter and saw that he had retweeted this from non-other than Keith Chegwin (or someone pretending to be him):

“Iceland. First they go bankrupt & now they set their island on fire. Anyone smell insurance scam”

Ahhh who cares they do some great sand sculptures.
