About 'Rear Vision':
In today's information age we know when things happen almost immediately but
so often we don't know or understand why. News and current affairs are
instantaneous but more often than not presented in a historical vacuum. Rear
Vision attempts to change this by presenting contemporary events and people
in their historical context.
