I have been watching many old documentaries on catch up tv on my ipad. This is a constant pleasure and all the more because I never know what’s going to pop up on screen at any one time. There is one series based around London, made between 1965 and 1991. Just odd sequences of black and white film showing all kinds of London areas. Covent Garden fruit market costa mongers, then it might jump to Borough Market or Petticoat Lane market. These social history documentaries are a truly inspiration lesson to all generations – take pictures, videos and keep records of how we live now. Learning how to read the history behind the lens is vital for all kinds of subjects. When you take up a software training package, knowing how to read properly what you see in front of you is not something we always appreciate at the time. Learning to learn is the key.
