The members of the National Validation Panel met for a third time (online). The first day the team presented the Digital Archive, and the first results and visualization possibilities, and provided the members of the National Validation Panel with online access and a list of questions regarding general issues and more specific problems concerning the seven case studies. The National Validation Panel members then worked on the Digital Archive in the afternoon. The next day, and two days the following week, the team met up with each of the National Validation Panel members to get feedback on the questions, and to evaluate, complement and question the analysis. These were the issues discussed: the price proxy, the cinema weight, the exhibition typology (elite, major, intermediate, and minor), the distribution patterns, the Top 20 programming, and the visualizations of the Digital Archive.
The National Validation Panel was for the occassion complemented with Stuart Hanson concerning his expertise on the UK film exhibition history.
