Body Image film series from the Centre for Appearance Research

Posted on Sep 19, 2014

A specially commissioned series of films from The Centre for Appearance Research (UWE) on body image for BBC Learning.

CAR's visiting Research Fellow Dr Zali Yager and Senior Research Fellow Dr Phillippa Diedrichs were invited to work with the BBC and One Tribe TV on a specially commissioned series of films on body image for BBC Learning.

The films were made for secondary school age classes with the aim of busting body image myths, investigating the commercialisation of body image ideals and promoting debate in the classroom.
