THE ROBERT MURRAY MEMORIAL LECTURE

TRANSLATING HISTORY TO TELEVISION

DR. PAMELA COX (UNIVERSITY OF ESSEX)

2.15 Saturday 27 April 2013
Lord Ashcroft Building (LAB) Room 002
Anglia Ruskin University, East Road, Cambridge

This will be a stimulating lecture about the problems of doing History on television delivered by one of Britain’s leading historians.

Dr. Cox is a historian and sociologist at Essex University. In 2012, she presented the acclaimed BBC series, Servants: The True History of Life Below Stairs. When it was shown, critics noted that the series presented a very different view of servant life from television’s Downton Abbey and was considered one of the best presentations of social history that has been offered by the BBC. Pamela Cox will talk in her lecture about the problems of doing History on Television and will use some extracts from her series.

Her book, Bad Girls in Britain (2002), explored the lives of many 'immoral' and criminal young women in the first half of the twentieth century. It followed them into the many reform homes, moral welfare homes and rescue homes that operated at the time, which trained thousands of them as servants. There are significant similarities between these homes and Ireland's infamous Magdalen Laundries. This will be the subject of a follow-up series to Servants with BBC2 later in the year.
