NICE – Looked-After Young People

Media19 were commissioned by NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) to produce a short film outlining their new quality standard for looked-after children and young people. This standard, featuring 8 statements, sets out what young people in care should expect as a minimum to enable them to fulfill their ambitions and reach their full potential.

Sir Andrew Dillon, Chief Executive of NICE was very impressed by the video and the contributions of the young people who took part.  They all developed their own words and thoughts based on their experiences of being a looked-after young person in response to the NICE statements through a number of workshops led by Media19.

Our thanks go to the participation team at North Tyneside Council and all the young people that took part. And to TJ (pictured below), who came up north to film the introduction  sequence. Many thanks to her, too.

 


Fish Pass – Darley Abbey

Film produced by Media19 for The Trent Rivers Trust about the design, development, construction and installation of the fish pass at Darley Abbey. The Larinier fish pass enables a diverse range of fish species to move upstream to find suitable river habitat for feeding and spawning. The design and construction of the fish pass was a complex process taking into account many environmental issues with the core aim of improving fish passage and the river habitats upstream of the existing weir at Darley Abbey. The design and construction also had to ensure the heritage value of the weir and the surrounding area was not adversely affected. Darley Abbey weir forms part of the Derwent Valley Heritage Site along with many other important historic mills and weirs along the river.

The fish pass was built using a grant provided by Defra under the Catchment Restoration Fund. It was designed by FISHTEK Ltd in Totnes and completed in partnership and with support from the Environment Agency, Derby City Council and Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site.

‘Eyes Wide Shut’

In recognition of Armistice Day we’re posting our film that tells the story of a young sergeant in WW1 who was one of 306 British soldiers executed for military offences. The most common charge was desertion or cowardice. All their names were omitted from war memorials, their relatives did not receive military pensions and many families lived with the shame of the events and could never celebrate or commemorate their relatives’ involvement in the horrors of ‘The Great War’.

It’s been 5 years since all 306 were granted a full pardon by the British Government and this film (made prior to that pardon) recalls the campaign of one relative seeking justice for his great Uncle and portrays the events and circumstances that led to the final tragic execution by firing squad.

 


Poached Salmon

Although poaching has been happening on rivers for centuries where locals might take ‘one for the pot’, nowadays the face of the salmon poacher has changed.  Following some of the North East river bailiffs as they police the local rivers from poachers, this film investigates the perceptions of poaching from the opposing sides; the poachers, the estate owners and the river police. Whilst some argue for the free right to fish, others see the poachers as a severe threat to the rivers and their livelihood.

 

 


Adam’s Story

Part of the BBC’s ‘People’s War’ series, Adam’s Story investigates the story of Pt. Adam Wakenshaw who died in battle during World War II. The film follows Pt. Wakenshaw’s grandson, Mark, as he investigates the death of the grandfather and hero he never knew.  Through this investigation the film uncovers the many lasting memories and effects left behind by the people’s war. Produced by Media19 for BBC North East and Cumbria.

 


Baltic Memories

Baltic Memories presents some of the personal, local memories of the Baltic Flour Mill. Employees from throughout the mill’s 31 year life remember the great grain silos and share their individual stories from the industrial of one of the North East’s favourite landmarks.

 

 


Under the Hammer

Just how do items go from a dusty corner shelf to being the prize item in the fast-paced auction room? Under the Hammer follows the process from discovering paintings, rare vases or toy cars through to the final sale and that possible record selling price.

 

 

 


Taratantara

In the summer of 1999 Anish Kapoor’s giant structure Taratantara became the first piece of artwork to exhibit in the new Baltic Centre for contemporary art.  The impressive structure that filled the void left by the remains of Baltic Flour Mill building, was designed to mark the transition from the Baltic’s old life as a flour mill to its future as a centre for art. The film presents interviews with the artist explaining his vision and creation, and illustrated through stunning visual shots shows the demanding challenge that faced those turning this vision into a reality.

 


Catch 22

As Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall seems to be making some progress on his crusade to stop the wasteful discarding of undersized fish caught in the North Sea, we thought it appropriate to show some of this film we made over 16 years ago. Not much has changed, as you can see.
