Telling Tales: A unique interactive documentary

A unique, interactive documentary is being used to raise awareness of the declining Red Squirrel population in the UK. Bringing together video, photography, words and song, “Red Tales” has been created entirely from material submitted by members of the public, exploiting our growing obsession with social media to create a living archive of this endangered species. The research was conducted through The Creative Exchange project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). It was led by researchers at Computing Science’s Open Lab in partnership with Red Squirrels Northern England and conservation charity Wildscreen.
