"It's unusual to find anyone whose commitment to participation is both realistic & born of conviction & even more so an organisation with the skills & experience to facilitate it so well." 

Dr. Chris High - Lecturer in Sustainable Systems - The Open University
 

Our films can help during COVID

We have been updating and adding new material online. We hope these films will help you carry on teaching, learning and being entertained.
 

EasySRE our award-winning website has just had a makeover. This popular website offers teachers a vast array of resources at their fingertips, and it’s free of charge to Walsall schools and low cost to others. 

Talk the Talk is one of the many films from the website, and might help parents or carers talk to their teenagers about relationships and boundaries in these testing times. (Watch the film for free above or follow the link)

The website features high-quality videos that use drama, animation and interviews to explore Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and well-being. These resources cater for students from 4 to 18 years of age. Additional films are available for students with SEND and parents/carers. They are accompanied by numerous lesson plans and signposting information. (Watch the trailers here).

 

Game Changer (see pic below) was made with and for young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), and is our most recent addition to the site. 

 

Game Changer

 

Herefordshire Life Through a Lens is our website teeming with interesting stories that record the social history of Herefordshire via the photographs of Derek Evans. There are longer interviews and shorter clips, as well as full-length films and many of Derek's photos. They present a fantastic resource for a wide range of interests in childhood, politics, culture, farming, county traditions, and rural life amongst others


"Wonderfully ambitious and beautifully realised too" says Daniel Meadows documentarist

 

We are currently adding previously unseen full length interviews from Chewing The Cud: Memories from Herefords Old Livestock Market and The Close In Living Memory (Hereford Cathedral Close Oral Histories)

Watch two films from the project: Stories from the Hop Yards and Carousel. 

Now free to view online.

And for something extra there are two short films that provide a lovely snapshot of Herefordshire music and entertainment memories.

 

Bereavement support for young people this film was made to highlight the service offered by St Giles Hospice in the West Midlands. We made the film with young people who had experienced loss and they share their helpful tips and perspectives. We felt it may be a good time to highlight the film. 

Most regions will have a bereavement support similar to this if you know someone who might need a helping hand, or check out the national organisation Good Grief.

 

Bereavement

 

We are have just commissioned Hereford-based Voodoochilli to create a much overdue Catcher Media website - so watch this space. We shall be sad to say goodbye to this one. We would like to acknowledge the support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund for their support at this time.
