Will Britain gain weight if Barbie does?

Dec
19

This January Lammily, the ‘real-looking’ Barbie, will be in stores. This is the Barbie with average wage, loose fitting clothes, acne, cellulite and bruises.

As the Gardian wrote, “this is one of those heart-in-the-right-place product” but I’m afraid while the doll might help one problem it will support another issue far greater than teenagers self-esteem.

Dec
17

While Julian Assange enjoys political asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, an Ecuadorian court allows for the extradition of an unknown Russian youth for unproven crimes. Ecuadorian officials have even threatened to take legal action against the United Kingdom because of the human rights abuses committed against Julian Assange. But, what about the abuses carried out against Grigory Basalygin who is being extradited to Russia for the trafficking the ‘large quantity’ of 0.22% of a gram of cocaine and an armed robbery with no weapons.

A Fairytale of Radio Kent - brought to you by CfJ students

Dec
15

BBC Radio Kent's plan to make a promotional video accompaniment to a musical Christmas classic required some deft work behind the camera and in the edit suite. So who should they call? Third year students from the CfJ's undergraduate degree programme.

Starring BBC Radio Kent's breakfast show presenters, John Warnett and Maggie Doyle, this fine little movie makes an affectionate nod to a previous, but plainly less Kent-based piece of work by The Pogues and Kirsty McColl. Huge congratulations to Amy Nickalls, Victoria Polley and Stine Wannebo and thanks to BBC Radio Kent for this opportunity to showcase the skills we teach here in the CfJ
