In conjunction with Norwich HEART's Digital Heritage brief to make archive film more accessible to a wider audience, Reel Heritage is focusing on developing access to archive specifically in education.
The moving image history of our region held at the East Anglian Film Archive is a unique record of how we lived our lives in the last century and an invaluable part of our heritage. The films also represent a remarkable resource for education and engagement for all ages and a stimulant for observation and discussion.

Using archive film from the East Anglian Film Archive, 'My Generation' is a 20 minute film focusing on the post-war evolution of teenagers and the youth subcultures that emerged, exploring the 'moral panic' that challenged authority and gave youths a new identity.
Narrated by comedian and writer Arthur Smith.
Using interviews with former Mods and Rockers from the 1960s and 70s, as well as teenagers from East Norfolk Sixth Form College, these 5 short films explore perceptions of all aspects of youth culture, encouraging discussion around a range of topics relevant to Key Stage Four and post-16 education.
All research, interviews, production and editing was performed by students at the University of East Anglia, studying media, politics and society.
The DVD inside cover offers a number of discussion points that might be raised in the 'classroom' from viewing 'My Generation' and the interviews.
The following downloadable PDF's offer more discussion points around those same themes.
