From Bradford UNESCO City of Film, we write about photography, film and television, and daily life in a national museum.
While we’re part of a wider group of Museums which includes the Science Museum in London, the National Railway Museum in York and the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, we are a small and friendly team here at the National Media Museum.
This blog is written by our staff, with the occasional guest author. Here’s a little bit more about us.
I’m a film festival & events producer by day and somewhat of a bookworm the rest of the time. I’m partial to a spot of cultural activity and have been known to offer up an opinion or two every now and again!

I am an Associate Curator at the Museum, working with all our collections, but cinema has always been my main interest.

Film festival junkie, box office lackey, glasses wearer and ginger beard grower. Currently living out of my rucksack and in coffee shops attempting to bring you the occasional interesting story of film, books, or random adventures. Opinions my own (of course). Follow me on twitter @jamiecross

I’m the Curator of New Media. Recent galleries I’ve worked on include Life Online – an exploration of the history and social impact of the internet, and the Games Lounge videogames exhibition. I also help programme the game events for the Bradford Animation Festival, and help build the Museum’s New Media Collection and National Videogame Archive. I like to post links and talk about what I had for breakfast on Twitter @tcwoolley. Tom no longer works at the Museum, but you should take a look at his killer illustrations.
