Summary Stuart Hall, a renown public speaker and teacher, lectures on the central ideas of cultural studies -- that reality is not experienced directly, but through the lens of culture, through the way that human beings represent and tell stories about the world in which they live. Using visual examples, Hall shows how the media -- and especially the visual media -- have become the key players in the process of modern story telling
