Reviving Marcus Banks's early Haddon database of ethnographic films

Dear all

with the support of the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology and the Royal Anthropological Institute I am happy to announce that after a hiatus of more than a decade

Marcus Banks's early  database of ethnographic films "the Haddon catalogue" has been revived and is now searchable once more, accessible on the Silent Time Machine website:

https://www.silenttimemachine.net/haddon/

(Please note that the underlying data has not been updated: it is as it was in 1993 when the original project concluded).

Many thanks to Paul Henley and to Rohan Jackson for making this happen
