Made by the University of Leeds, this is a promotional film, hosted by the Yorkshire Film Archive website {|CLICK HERE|Click here} that explores both campus and the city, specifically to aid sixth formers make a decision about university.

Entitled ‘Talk About Leeds’, the film opens with a shot of the Leeds city skyline. This is followed by exteriors of many of the university buildings. Inside, four students are discussing the different subjects they are currently studying and how they came about that decision. One of the students speaks about his engineering programme, something which he has wanted to study right from the start. One of the other students points out that many people change their minds and declare a different major after starting university. Leeds is the type of place where students can do that as you can take a variety of courses to combine studies. Another one of the students, studying law, points out that not all students go to university straight from school.

The film is one of hundreds hosted by the YFA, most of which were donated by people living in Yorkshire. Many of the films are discovered in lofts or garages and have been lovingly restored by the dedicated team.
