It's well known that facial expressions and body language are useful for gaining an idea of how someone is feeling beyond the words they say. Understanding the connection between physical movements and felt emotions can be particularly useful for market researchers, but it remains unclear how reliable body language cues are. We hear a lot about how certain behaviours give an indication of what a person is thinking or feeling – many believe that a person playing with their hair is an indication of attraction, and that looking upwards and to the right signifies lying, to name a couple.

What is oral history, and why is it valuable?
Oral history is the practice of recording stories for posterity. It has the ability to preserve parts of history that may not otherwise be heard, which can help to keep cultures alive, offer different perspectives on historical events and give a voice to people who have valuable stories to tell. Oral histories can be used for various purposes, from source material for historical and cultural research to creating multimedia presentations for storytelling in museum exhibits, talks and online resources.
