• 20 Podcasts for Stuarts Online

    Commission to produce 20 'in conversation' recordings illustrated with original sources. 

    The academic team from the AHRC funded 'Stuarts-Online' project selected the topics for the twenty short illustrated podcasts, produced by Historyworks as twenty films on vimeo .  We were aiming for these to be of 5 minutes duration, but because so many of the sources and their interpretations are *new* to audiences, we found that most of the films needed 12 to 15 minutes to engage and explain the sources.   Jon Calver of Historyworks, recorded all of these short films and edited them using final cut pro X.  It was Jon's idea too in the training workshop when it was challenging for academics to communicate to a wide audience beyond academia, that the best format would be for all of the recordings to be 'in conversation' with a questioner from the academic team and an expert responding.  To see ALL the podcast/films at Stuarts-Online here.  And do view an example below, a film about the Execution of King Charles:
