Katy is our curator specialising in documentary film. She has been with the BFI since 2001. Her main specialism is the history of the British documentary from the 1920s to the present. Other areas of specialism include the history of official films, in particular the work of the Central Office of Information from 1946 to its closure in 2012; films used as evidence in Courts of Trial, and the history of health issues on film: she produced the BFI DVD release The Joy of Sex Education (2008).
Katy has contributed chapters to the anthologies Shadows of Progress: Documentary Films of Post-War Britain (Palgrave/BFI, 2010), and Ealing Revisited (Palgrave/BFI, 2012). She regularly contributes short essays to BFI DVD booklets, Screenonline and the Mediatheque.
