10:30am to 3pm, 14 June, in-venue at BFI Southbank

This event is linked to the AQA and Edexcel GCSE English specifications (but is also suitable for upper KS3) with the added appeal of using rare archive materials. The morning will comprise a clip-based lecture looking at the original text by George Orwell and exploring how it was adapted by John Halas and Joy Batchelor.

Using materials from the Halas and Batchelor’s Collection in the BFI Special Collections as literacy tools, students and teachers will be encouraged to engage with the text in a new way. In the afternoon there will be an introduced screening of the film.
