The first in-depth study of its kind, Films of Fact explores the fascinating development of science on screen since 1903. The latest title in Wallflower Press’s Nonfictions series, the book discusses important films such as Cheese Mites (1903) and World of Plenty (1943), as well as seminal television programmes including Horizon (1964 onwards). As part of The London International Documentary Film Festival, Timothy Boon, Chief Curator at the Science Museum, will be giving a short lecture about his work together with Brian Winston, general editor of the Nonfictions series.
