Science cinema

Short notice, but I have just had an email from Tim Boon from the Science Museum, and thought this was one of the places I could pass it on.

Science films at the National Film Theatre - this monday evening.

The programme includes the whimsical natural history of Percy Smith in World in a Wine Glass; advocacy of technology in The Coming of the Dial (1931); and science as social concern in Enough to Eat? (1936) , against Nazi race theory in Man One Family (1946) and in the service of work efficiency in Britain Can Make It: Motion Study (1946). The programme's culmination is Paul Rotha's eloquent World of Plenty (1943), which argues for the scientific planning of world food supplies to bring an end to world hunger.
