Videos

These are videos for use predominantly in schools, though they may have applications elsewhere. They can either be used independently, or alongside the study of Marcus’ books, and offer a cheaper option than having Marcus visit your school in person. Once you have bought the video, it’s yours to use in the school that has purchased it, for life.

 

Floodland

It covers topics such as why and how Marcus wrote the book, what research went into it, as well as discussing environmental issues and the importance of continuing to learn about climate change. There are also three short readings from the book.

The Gothic - a video in two parts

This is a two-part video; each part is around 35 minutes long, to fit comfortably into a single 40 minute lesson. 

 

Part One covers the origins of the Gothic – where the word came from, how and why it came to be applied to certain sorts of books, and the key texts in the first wave of Gothic, notably Frankenstein, and Dracula. It contains the incredible story of Mary and Percy Shelley, Dr John Polidori and Lord Byron, and his ex-lover Clare Clairmont, explaining how a volcano in Indonesia was responsible for an explosion in Gothic literature.

 

Part Two takes us into the modern world and looks at how the Gothic manages to infect itself across the world of popular culture.

There are a few screenshots from the videos here, and an extract from Part Two, so you know what you’re buying.

 

The two Gothic videos together video cost £400. 

 

This fee gives lifetime access to the SINGLE SCHOOL or INSTITUTION who purchased the video.
