Barrie Machin

I am a child of the blitz and my response to this experience was to spend a large part of my life trying to find means to improve cross-cultural understanding naively, maybe, I thought that education was a key to reducing conflict. Banning the arms trade might be better but education really matters. I taught and lectured in social anthropology for many years and carried out many years of field research in Britain, Greece, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Thailand, India, Brazil and Australia. I pioneered single system super 8 and all high-end domestic video cameras. The result is a unique set of historic ethnographic videos. https://vimeo.com/ondemand/machinethnographic
