PhD Successes

Two researchers, supervised by Professor John Hill and involved in the work of the Centre, have successfully completed their PhDs.  Daryl Perrins’ thesis entitled ‘They Can’t Stop Us Singing’: Film, Television and the Representation of the Welsh Working Class’ provides an original and wide-ranging analysis of representations of the Welsh working class in film and television. Katie Crosson’s thesis entitled ‘Replay for Today: Revisiting Play for Today (1970-1984) at Fifty’ challenges conventional forms of canonisation of individual Plays for Today and places a particular emphasis on the significance of understanding Play for Today as a strand. Katie’s research has been undertaken as part of an AHRC-funded TECHNE Collaborative Doctoral Award involving the Centre for the History of Television Culture and Production, the BFI and the BBC.
