    This is a film of the broadcast debate Who Cares? About the General Election... This debate was held in Bolton Markets Lifestyle Hall on the 26.2.15 and was a Bolton at Home project partnering with Johnson Fold Radio and Bolton FM. 33.2 % of people in Bolton did not vote in the last General Election. This was a chance to get together and talk through why people in Bolton do not vote and what people think of the political system in the UK. "Incredible events can unfold when such a range of people and opinions meet in the same room; the Live Debate successfully demonstrated just how valuable it is for the everyday man or woman to speak up and be counted." Adam Slater, Johnson Fold FM Chairman

              Computers have brought about enormous changes in all aspects of our lives over the last 20 years. The next 20 years are likely to see changes of even bigger magnitude. Soon, every fact about us, and every one of our movements, our utterances, and perhaps even our thoughts, will be routinely recorded by computers. Controlling who has access to this information is becoming a great technological challenge, as mobile and cloud-based services are adopted widely. The information may be deliberately or inadvertently made available on a wide scale. Mark's inaugural lecture discusses these problems and some relevant research.

                      In his book, Gordon Martin focuses on the lives and experiences of courageous black citizens of Forrest County, Mississippi who served as witnesses in United States v. Lynd. The Lynd case (1961-1965) was the first voting rights trial that resulted in conviction of a southern voting registrar for refusal to register black voters. Each of the black witnesses had been refused registration by Theron Lynd. (Lynd had served as the local Forrest County/Hattiesburg registrar since 1955.) In his role as a young lawyer for the Department of Justice, in 1961 Gordon Martin traveled to Hattiesburg, Mississippi from Washington to meet with the witnesses and prepare them for trial. (In addition, he located white witnesses and served as a lawyer during the trial.) Decades after the conclusion of the Lynd trial, Gordon Martin returned to Mississippi to interview the surviving black witnesses from the Lynd case. Martin’s book draws much of its content from these interviews as well as from documented history and his own experiences. It seems likely that at Labyrinth, all of the aspects of Martin’s book will be explored—oral history; documented history; and personal experiences of a young lawyer.
