We are very grateful to Professor Emma Wilson, the founding general editor of the series, for all of her work. This changing of the guard, after many years of service, also sees two other lomg-serving committee members stepping down: Erica Carter and Robert Gordon. Our thanks go also to them. Their successors on the Moving Image committee will be anmounced shortly.
