THE VICTORIANS - BBC: A Classic from the Original Augustus Aurelianus Channel (suspended) Jeremy Paxman takes his love of Victorian paintings as the starting point for a journey into Victorian Britain. Such pictures may not be fashionable today, but they are a goldmine of information about the most dynamic age in British history. Overview: Victorian Britain, 1837 - 1901 During the Victorian era, Britain could claim to be the world's superpower, despite social inequality at home and burgeoning industrial rivals overseas. How did it happen? HOME SWEET HOME Jeremy Paxman continues his exploration of the Victorian world by entering the typical Victorian home, a haven of order, respectability and morality. In this episode, he enters the typical Victorian home, a haven of order, respectability and morality. Yet, not everything was always as it should be, with sexual double standards and the perils of drink, disease and poverty all threatening to destroy the cherished dream of Home Sweet Home.
Commission finds that Victorians were abandoned during Black Saturday..... VICTORIANS were abandoned during the state's worst disaster by catastrophic failures in leadership on Black Saturday. (composite video) That's what the bushfires royal commission was told in a stinging attack that threatens the reputations of former police chief commissioner Christine Nixon, CFA chief Russell Rees and other senior officers. Emergency services chiefs - including CFA deputy Steve Warrington, DSE chief fire officer Ewan Waller and Emergency Services Commissioner Bruce Esplin - were obsessed with co-ordination rather than command, the commission heard. They focused on overseeing their troops rather than supervising the firefight and issuing warnings to people in the path of the inferno. Jack Rush, QC, counsel assisting the commission, said proper and effective leadership was absent on Black Saturday..... At the time, Deputy Chief Commissioner Kieran Walshe was still at home and this meant none of the top three people responsible for the state's disaster plan were present at the IECC nerve centre.... www.heraldsun.com.au VICTORIA'S emergency leadership was "missing at the crisis hour" on Black Saturday, the bushfires royal commission has been told in a damning conclusion. In a brutal summary of the actions of former police chief Christine Nixon, CFA chief Russell Rees, and others in leadership positions, counsel assisting the commission Jack Rush QC said that on the day of Australia's ...
Learn more about this exhibition: Playing with Pictures: The Art of Victorian Photocollage on view at the Met February 2, 2010 - May 9, 2010: tinyurl.com Elizabeth Siegel, Associate Curator of Photography, The Art Institute of Chicago Sixty years before the embrace of collage techniques by avant-garde artists of the early twentieth century, aristocratic Victorian women were already experimenting with photocollage. The compositions they made with photographs and watercolors are whimsical and fantastical, combining human heads and animal bodies, placing people into imaginary landscapes, and morphing faces into common household objects. Such images, often made for albums, reveal the educated minds as well as the accomplished hands of their makers. With sharp wit and dramatic shifts of scale akin to those Alice experienced in Wonderland, these images stand the rather serious conventions of early photography on their heads. The exhibition features forty-eight works from the 1860s and 1870s, from public and private collections. Accompanied by a catalogue.
An array of weird and wonderful Victorian gadgets have gone on show at Croxteth Hall in Liverpool. The exhibition will run from April 1 to May 23. Tickets are £2.75 for adults and £2 for children and OAPs. The objects range from the useful, to the down right bizarre and include a self pouring tea pot, a moustache spoon, and an early Victorian version of inline skates. Curator of the collection Julia Carder explains how some of the gadgets work.

I have an interest in Victorian post mortem photography. These are some of the photos I've collected from onilne sources. These pictures are of children in the Victorian era. In that time period it was common for families to have photos taken of their children after death because photography was expensive and other family members couldn't always make it to the funeral and they wanted a momento of the deceased. . WARNING: If you're sensitive to pictures of death please do not view this video
The swine flu pandemic has reached a total of 60000 cases worldwide. With Australia having the 5th highest number of reported H1N1 cases. The state of Victoria having the majority of these. This story from our Melbourne correspondent, Kathryn Shakespear. Australia is sitting at number 5 on the world list of the highest number of cases of Swine Flu. The United States has the highest number, followed by Mexico, Canada, Chile and Australia. In the Southern State of Victoria, the number here is the highest in Australia. With 1509 cases confirmed, what do Melbournians think of the numbers, and are they taking precautions to combat Swine Flu. [Barrie Sutton, Semi-retired]: Well I think thats a matter of concern, that Victorias so high. [Emma Clayton, Property Manager]: I thought that they would have contained it before it got so bad, and Ive seen a lot of people walk around with masks and stuff, but theres no one that I know thats had it. [Nura Sheidaee, Student]: People overreact a bit, cause it is a new thing, every time theres an outbreak its scares people, I think its just a bit overreacting." [Steve Heath, Sales Manager]: I think theres quite a lot here in Victoria, but Im not too worried about it, Im not too concerned about it, but it seems to be growing all the time. [Jack Hajro, Student]: Dont think itll kill me or anything, I dont think its a real big deal. So what precautions are Victorians taking to remain safe? [Michelle Wong, Student]: Vitamins every morning, like ...

A fascinating glimpse into victorian lives through these very spirited ladies memoirs.. Again not a ghostly video, But as I love history (as you have probably guessed by now !)

In London there is a company called Necropolis who specialise in relocating graves from old churchyards and crypts. Some of the sites are dilapidated and other burial places need to be removed for redevelopment. There are several pictures in this film which show some of the amazing archaeological discoveries found during and grave clearance process. Usually a body will decompose quickly once buried, but very occasionally decomposition will be completely halted leading to mumification. This offers archaeologists a fasinating and important glimpe into the past and gives us a clearer picture of the lives of our ancestors, ie dieases that effected them, how well they were nourished etc. Many of the diseases that people used to die of such as smallpox, tuberculosis, cholera, typhoid to name but a few have since become obsolete in Britain, so great care must be taken when moving these bodies as it can be quite a dangerous and hazardous job, Also the original coffins are usually rotten so the human remains need to placed in a modern casket for transferal to the new burial site. Other pictures in this video are sad reminders of lives that have come and gone and of our own mortallity..

Princeton is a Los Angeles-based trio that are releasing their second recording, the Bloomsbury EP, this summer. The group lives in an aging green house on a hillside in the Eagle Rock district of LA where they hermetically pieced together the songs for Bloomsbury. Each composition on the EP is lyrically focused upon a member of the influential Bloomsbury intellectual collective that existed in London during the early 20th century. Lyrical portraits of Leonard Woolf, Lytton Strachey, Virginia Woolf and John Maynard Keynes are each presented in a different musical framework with lush orchestral arrangements that draw from a collage of influences — Serge Gainsbourg's Gainsbourg Percussions, The Kinks' Something Else, Jorge Ben's Forca Bruta and Jean Claude Vannier's L'enfant La Mouche Et Les Allumettes to name a few. The record was mixed by Pete Weiss (Moe Tucker, Lee Ranaldo, Aimee Mann) and mastered by Jeff Lipton (The Magnetic Fields, Spoon, Jeff Tweedy/Wilco). The band is comprised of twin brothers Jesse (Vocals, Guitar, Ukulele, Drums, Keyboards) and Matt Kivel (Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards), and Ben Usen (Piano, Harpsichord, Organ, Fender Rhodes). The Kivels met Ben at the age of five while attending elementary school in Los Angeles. Six years later they formed a tentative musical partnership after watching the 1996 Tom Hanks film "That Thing You Do!" A wide array of home recordings, live concerts and music video projects would follow with a constantly shifting ...
