boclips’ psychology collection is expanded with the representation of Siren Films, founded by zoologist Dr. Wendy McEvoy in 2002. By filming unscripted, authentic material and only in real homes and childcare settings, Siren Films offers unique videos about childhood development and behaviours, that are endorsed by expert Phil Stringer, Principal Educational Psychologist , who has stated “The importance and potential value of Siren Films cannot be sufficiently emphasised.
In my opinion the quality of their films is as good as any one is ever likely to see.” And Sir David Attenborough – “I watched with unalloyed delight”.
