A visit to a chicken processing factory, where live white birds are converted into frozen carcasses. This film shows the whole process, and the migrant women working on the production line. Made as a short political documentary in 1972 by three students studying drama and filmmaking at Flinders University. This film was inspired by anger at the arrival in Australia of American junkfood giant Kentucky Fried Chicken. On the advertising billboard which closes the film, a roast chicken under the gaze of Colonel Sanders is declared as Womens Liberation. Feminists and their supporters read this as an insult to their cause, others saw it as yet more foreign cultural imposition. The film is set with a mix of good old fashioned big band music. Soundtrack includes a section of silence where the plucked chickens have their heads removed by a neck-stretching machine. Shot on a Bolex H16 Reflex camera, using black and white 16mm film, on a low editing ratio of about 1:2. Direction, camerawork and editing by Richard Tipping. Producer: Tess McGough. Soundtrack by Bernard Neeson (later known as Doc Neeson). Finger Lickin' Good was distributed by the Sydney Filmmakers' Co-operative during the 1970s. A digital master copy has been made from the original release print. Linked to

Made from beautiful Egyptian beads, believed to have been worn as a decorative outer garment by a young girl, the world's oldest known dress was discovered by a student of the real life Indiana Jones, the Father of modern archaeology, William Matthew Flinders Petrie. Made from beautiful Egyptian beads, believed to have been worn as a decorative outer garment by a young girl, the world's oldest known dress was discovered by a student of the real life Indiana Jones, the Father of modern archaeology, William Matthew Flinders Petrie. Thought to be about 3000 years old, this beaded dress was successfully restored in 1994 after prior haphazard attempts to envision what it could have looked like. The Excavating Egypt Exhibit at the University of Kentucky's "The Art Museum" is a major exhibition from the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology in England, featuring over 200 of Petrie's most significant finds many never before seen by the public. These objects were hidden away in secret storage facilities throughout London at the beginning of World War II and have never been displayed until now. With this world class museum exhibit from March through June 14, 2009, the University of Kentucky is rising to the top 20 echelon of universities to which it aspires.

A curious papyrus dated circa 100 BC, contains two spells to protect the mummy into the after life in ancient Egyptian lore. From March through June 14, 2009, the University of Kentucky's "The Art Museum" in the world class "Singletary Center for the Arts" displays the first public exhibition of many egyptian artifacts, some 3000 years old. The exhibit includes a papyrus from the infamous Egyptian "Book of the Dead" containing two spells to protect the dead in the after life. Excavating the land of the pyramids produced the real life Indiana Jones: William Matthew Flinders Petrie of Britain (1853-1942). In an effort to rise to the top twenty of national colleges, The Art Museum is on the frontline of the battle and winning.
