Connected in Time | Coping Mechanisms

Season 1, Episode 3,  Jul 02, 2020, 04:24 PM

In Episode 3 of Coping Mechanisms Iain and Jane explore how Twitter has become an unlikely positive platform during lockdown.

Exploring whether we can really have a collective experience online, our hosts meet with Carol Morley and Tim Burgess.

Catch up with the brilliant writer and director Carol Morley, whose films include Dreams of a Life and The Falling. Carol has been hosting “Friday Film Club” – each week she chooses a readily available, free-to-watch film. People then watch at the same time and meet up on Twitter to discuss it afterwards.

Similarly, The Charlatans frontman, musician, writer, DJ and record label owner, Tim Burgess launched an extensive series of “Tim’s Twitter Listening Parties”, where fans could come together, with Tim and members of the band, to ask questions and share memories.
