Yesterday's News by Luke McKernan
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Yesterday's News" is a collection of over forty contemporary and recent articles on newsreel history, presented chronologically, from the early years of the newsreels in the 1910s to their recent revival as the subject of academic research and a key source for historical documentaries. The book covers the filming of two World Wars, the Spanish Civil War, the rise of television news, and censorship, propaganda and political bias in the news. It explores how the newsreels were organized, the cameramen's experiences, and the overlooked role of women in the newsreels. It also features works by notable authors, including Graham Greene, Cecil Day-Lewis, Philip Norman and J.B. Priestley as well as articles from "The Spectator," the "Financial Times," and "Sight and Sound."
