Recovering the history of women camera operators

Nick Hall has recently co-authored an article with Jeannine Baker of Macquarie University entitled ‘Rigged against them: Women camera operators at the BBC during the 1970s and 1980s’ . Published in Women’s History Review (31: 4), the article draws upon public and private archives, and oral history interviews with former BBC women film and television camera operators, to examine women’s employment in camera roles during the 1970s and 1980s and how these remained restricted despite the BBC’s overt commitment to enhancing workplace equality in technical areas. The article may be found here.
