To mark Raymond Williams’s centenary we are running a series of events throughout the autumn of 2021. First up, on Williams’s birthday (Tuesday 31st August), there was a rare screening of his 1970 film Border Country, directed by Nicholas Garnham for the BBC series One Pair of Eyes. This will be followed by a lecture series featuring Lynsey Hanley (6th October), Daniel Hartley (13th October), and Anna Kornbluh, Madhu Krishnan, and Paul Stasi (17th November). All four events will be free and hosted on Zoom with the links to join posted below. There’s no need to register, simply click on the relevant link on the day.

Tuesday 31st August, 9pm (BST): Border Country screening.

The film was shown at Birkbeck, London as part of the ‘Radical Broadcasts: Theory on TV’ series in 2018, curated by Colm McAuliffe and Matthew Harle. Many thanks to Colm and Matthew for their support in making our centenary screening possible.
