On Monday, April 16th, at 6pm in the Rosenthal Lecture Room at the Foundation’s offices, excerpts from the documentary series Saving Britain’s Past (2009) will be presented.
Several episode excerpts from the BBC documentary series help explain how the historic preservation movement has grown, succeeded and changed over the years. It tells the story of how feelings about history have developed, what those shifts tell us about ourselves and how they have shaped who we are. The episode excerpts combine social history, ideas, emotions, and beautiful archival images to show how economic realities conflict with sentiment, how heritage organizations have worked with communities or failed to and how the demands of real life do or do not marry with the purist visions of academics.
The showing will begin at 6pm and end at 8:00pm.
The showing will be held in Rosenthal Lecture Room at the Preservation Foundation’s offices located at 311 Peruvian Avenue in Palm Beach.
Please note, doors lock at 6:15pm.
