Looking for Suggestions - History Vidshow

March 29th, 2015 (05:46 pm)

 I'm running a history-themed vidshow for this year's VidUKon, and I'm currently looking for recs!

I'm after any and all vids with historical settings, but I'm especially keen to hear ideas about less popular historical eras, non-Western history and marginalised people in history, since I figure those will probably be harder to track down and I want to have a broad variety of things!

You are very much encouraged to self-rec if you have something you think might fit the bill! :D

shadow of the tower

Okay, don't know if any of these will be what you're looking for, but some things:

In The Hole (Ripper Street, focus on science/detection, parallels I think between it and the (contemporary) The Wire, 1890s).

Somewhere a Clock is Ticking (Hollow Crown, price of the crown, Richard II-Henry V)

Serve (White Queen, Earl of Warwick)

Let's Go (Young Men Dead) (Lawrence of Arabia)

Everybody Wants to Rule the World (Ripper Street)

Hero (The Hour, 1950s BBC)

Am I To Be Made of Stone (Elizabeth I, using Elizabeth, Elizabeth R & the Virgin Queen).

Devotion (North & South, 1850s, but whole cast, so factory owners & workers & links across classes).

And I don't even know whether to mention these, because I don't think badly edited fanvids on unpretty 70s sources are what you're after here, but I made a couple for Shadow of the Tower, but Effigy (Henry VII & all the conspiracies) is long and has horribly glaring faults, but I did do a small challenge vid Company of Shadows (Death of Elizabeth of York/history/memory/ghosts). And I also made Death Waltz (Fall of Eagles, BBC 1970s epic about the fall of the European empires, leading to WWI and the Russian Revolution, 1850-1918. It is shaky, but it does have Patrick Stewart eating pancakes. Password: eagles.)
