Mail, Motion and Maps aims to blend cutting edge music with a programme of historic film, all run by the Watershed and drawing from the General Post Office Film unit film archives. This spectacular collaboration will take place in the one of Bristolís most iconic buildings Ė The Digby Wyatt Building at Temple Meads, otherwise known as the Passenger Shed or Brunelís Old Station.

The evening is an artistic exploration and expression of postmodern themes such as industry, modernity and technology. Brunelís Old Station is the ideal event venue as it came to represent these themes so comprehensively as the terminus for the Great Western Railway in 1841, as conceived by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Brunel is considered such a prominent figure in the history of British modernisation that he was represented in the recent London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony.

The full programme for the evening is as follows.

Film Screening: Night Mail Dir: Harry Watt and Basil Wright, 24mins
Film Screening: Trade Tattoo Dir: Len Lye, 5mins, 1937
Film Screening: Love on The Wing Dir: Norman McLaren, 4mins, 1938
Performance by BEAM: The Rhythm of work-a-day Britain

The BEAM performance draws the musicians together for a visual and auditory finale which explores the rich heritage of Temple Meads and Brunelís Old Station.
