The Kinematograph in Education *

    Article metrics


    AN account of what has been called “The Middlesex Experiment”, carried out with sound films by a joint committee on which various educational authorities in the county were represented, has recently been published. The experiment was made possible by the generous offer of the Western Electric Company to provide, free of charge, sound film equipment and the services of competent operators. Sixteen films were used, divided into four groups; six had geographical value, four dealt with biology or nature study, and the other six were of general interest. These were lent by British Instructional Films and British Movietone News.
