The British have long been interested in studying and documenting various forms of social organization and human interaction, and their much-revered BBC has also been involved in letting residents have their say on a number of programs, including the notable “Video Nation”. The program started in the early 1990s, and with the rise of the Internet many of these short vignettes have been folded into this very informative and engaging website. With eighteen regional centers, visitors can view videos from such locations as Kent, Birmingham, and Manchester. Visitors looking for videos on certain topics can delve into the Archive section and look through headings such as Africa, football, lomography, and summer. Other sections of the site allow users to learn more about making a short film and the history of the Video Nation program.
