Shared a video called Defining the Mass Media Part 1

Oops - this is the actual link to the Mass media video. The other link goes to my YouTube Channel home page where the lead video is the new "Organised Crime" complete (20 minute) version.

Shared a video called Defining the Mass Media: Part 1

Short, less than 5 minutes, and sweet intorduction to the concept of a mass medium

Shared a video called Organised Crime Part 4: Clan Models

The fourth and final part of the long-running (quite literally as it turns out) "Transnational Organised Crime" saga deals with Clan models. The videos are designed to be used as part of the Globalisation and Crime section of the A2 Crime and Deviance module. I would say "enjoy" but that's probably not quite the right word in this context...

Shared a video called Crime Statistics: The Dark Figure

This is a short video that looks at the so-called "dark figure" of crime - crimes that are committed in our society but which never appear in the official recorded crime statistics. As such the video looks at methodological questions (reliability and validity, for example) surrounding our use of official crime statistics.

Shared a video called Visual Sociology: Macro and Micro Perspectives

For those of you with students who have an attention span of longer than 5 minutes (anyone?) this is the version "they're" calling the "Definitive One" (it's actual title is "Macro and Micro Perspectives" but who am I, a mere autour, to argue with the mighty Wisdom of Crowds?). As you might expect from this it combines Part 1 (macro) and Part 2 (micro) to make a...err...much longer video (just less than 9 minutes if you exclude the jazzy opening and rather more muted closing).

Shared a video called Visual Sociology: Micro Perspectives

This is the second of a two-part video that provides a general introduction to the idea of micro sociology. Part one is an introduction to macro sociology. I've separated the two parts (each of which is around 5 minutes long) for those who just want to watch one or the other. They are, however, designed to be viewed together and, for this reason, I'll be making the complete film available in due course (don't hold your breath...).The fact I've split a complete film into two parts explains why Part 1 has an intro section (but no end credits) and Part 2 has no intro section but does have end credits. I could have given each part complete start and end sections but, quite frankly, I couldn't be arsed...
