Organisations collaborate to create new theatre research YouTube channel

Exciting news that several esteemed organisations including the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum and the University of Bristol Theatre Collection have created a new channel – Theatre and Visual Culture in the Nineteenth Century – which you can find here.

This is part of a project examining theatre as a significant and integrated part of nineteenth century visual culture, between Warwick University Theatre and Performance Studies Department & University of Exeter Drama Department and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (which supports world-class research into human culture and creativity).

With a fascinating range of material, this will be something that anyone with a keen interest in theatre history will want to dip into time and time again. Good luck to the project and its continued success!
