Paul Morrison went to work for the BBC, after studying at Cambridge University and the RCA film school.  Uncomfortable with mainstream media, he left the BBC in 1970 to join Inter-Action in Kentish town, founding their media department to make videos with kids and community groups, and experimental participatory films. [Note: Paul's name is misspelt in the 2nd title card, also Inter-Action  as Interaction, and ED Berman’s name (as Burnham) further on - our apologies]  FULL BIOGRAPHY HERE
