Following the above brief, develop a catalogue of 5 movies or 5 episodes* from different television/mini-series (accounting for the individual episode’s place in the overall series) that exemplifies one of the following genres:

Consider the following:

• If you develop a catalogue of titles across history, outline what unites these titles, or what similar issues they address.

• Your catalogue can include a combination of film and television programmes so long as you justify how they both contribute to your chosen genre.

• Your catalogue should draw upon required/recommend readings, debate from lectures/tutorial discussions, and independent research (for example reviews/essays on particular movies).

Contextual/analytical review of each title (150- 200 words for each title)
Write a statement for each title which explains the nature of the movie or programme, why it has been included in your catalogue, and how it relates to your catalogue genre.
