Warwick Student Cinema: Relocation?

Last week Hannah Smith reported on the problems Warwick Student Cinema are facing regarding new laboratories which are to be built underneath L3 on the Science Concourse, which is home to the screen of WSC. What we know already is that a relocation for the society will cost around £40,000, which is a staggering amount. Unfortunately, a representative from Warwick Student Cinema was unavailable for comment on this issue but the Students Union released the following statement today:

The Students’ Union is of course supporting Warwick Student Cinema with
the issue of new science labs underneath L3. The lines of communication
between the Students’ Union, the department and the wider University
administration are open and clear, and all parties are keen to work
towards a mutually beneficial solution. There is certainly not an
adversarial approach being taken by anyone involved.

At this stage it is impossible to know the outcome of the situation, and
the Students’ Union for its part is working hard to resolve the issue as
soon as possible. It is important to note that the fact discussions are
being had makes it clear there is a recognition throughout the
University of the importance of student-led extra curricular activity.

From there the issue appears to be being dealt with amicably and we will keep you updated on this story, what it means for the WSC. Hopefully we can get a response from the society for next week’s show. As always if you are a member of WSC or simply enjoy the films they show, do email in and let us know what you think on

RaW News – Do You REALLY Want To Ban Smoking?

Writing about web page link

Yes, it's almost that time of the week again and its another packed edition of RaW News Insight. Coming up tonightat 5…

The smoking ban saga continues – the original motion to ban smoking in the union has been altered over the weekend, to include cuts to society funding, opening hours and union events should the motion be passed. In other words, if you were up for banning smoking, you could be about to get a lot more than what you bargained for.

We'll have the full story on the programme, and we'll be talking to the people campaigning for and against the motion. Do you think it's right to alter the proposal into something that no-one will vote for? Send us your views during the programme – is the addres.

Chicago vs Leamington Spa – Good ol' Leam's become a hotbed of vice and violence – well that's if you believe the local paper this week. Violent crimes are on the up they say – we'll be talking to the West Midlands police to see how you can keep safe.

Leah Betts – 10 years on Believe it or not, today marks 10 years since Leah Betts died after taking Ecstacy on her 18th birthday. The antidrugs campaign has practically ground to a halt in recent years. We'll be finding out if the Leah Bett's story changed your views on drugs when you were kids.

And we'll be going to Thailand to see how the country is recovering from the Tsunami almost 1 year on, and taking a look behind the headlines at the violent insurgences in the southern provinces.

This, plus much much more today, live at five, only on RaW 1251am and online.
