We were shown some videos in the lecture of some videos that feature a spectacle, including bullfights and people drunk.  i think that the videos were interesting to watch because i wanted to see someone get hurt or something out of the ordinary. They were not videos that i would get shown on television and there is a certain interest i et of watching footage that people have recorded using cameras phones, which most of the videos are. I would quite like to pinch this idea and perhaps think about using my camera phone to record my idea, plus it is a small camera which will be easy to hide from my delivery man. Im going to do some research on voyeurism and the law about nudity. i was also given ideas about spectacle using the  power of conformity and we were shown a clip about people facing the wall in a lift influencing other people to do the same. i believe the British National Parties website to be a spectacle. Reading their policies is very interesting because we are rarely exposed to any sort of controversal opinion which can be seen as being racist. when Nick Griffin appeared on question time it had far more viewing than the show had ever achieved. and this was because Nick Griffins appearance and opinions are a spectacle.   http://bnp.org.uk/.

 

DO YOU THINK NICK GRIFFIN SHOULD HAVE BEEN ALLOWED TO APPEAR ON QUESTION TIME AND DID YOU WATCH IT?  (please post you responses)
