      Malcolm Le Grice's Threshold (1972)

      Bits in Motion: Early British Computer Animation features rare and little-known works from the  beginnings of British computer animation as well as onstage discussions with  pioneers from the early days of this field will include discussions with leading practitioners of the time.

      This event marks the culmination of CACHe, an extensive research 
      project at Birkbeck into the untold stories behind the early days of 
      British computer arts. The screening and discussion will take audiences on 
      a journey through previously lost or obscure material, from the first 
      computer animation made in Britain, to the appearance of computer graphics 
      in commercial TV and film. Artists and practitioners who were active at 
      the time, including Stan Hayward (creator of Henry's Cat) and 
      Malcolm Le Grice, Dr Charlie Gere and Dr George Mallen will introduce the work and take part in panel discussions with pioneers.

      In conjunction with this event, the NFT will also present two related 
      programmes: a screening of Early American Computer Generated Film on 2 March, and hands-on 'obsolete' computer animation workshops on 4 March.

      Tickets £8.20, concs £6.25, NFT members 
      £7.20, members' concs £5.25
