Magna Cartatriggering curiosity in history
To celebrate the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta, we were commissioned by The National Archives and UK Parliament to film ‘interviews’ with some of the key players. These were written to support the pupil's own investigation of historical documents. The videos formed part of an interactive learning resource.
We filmed over two days on at St. Mary’s Church, Radnage to give the videos an authentic 13th Century atmosphere. The resource won the Jury's Special Prize at the MEDEA Awards. To support the promotion of the resource to schools, we also photographed some ‘mistakes’ - showing new technology in the hands of our 13th Century celebrities.
