Listed here are links to Mass Observation Special Reports in the University of Sussex Special Collections catalogue, digitised as part of the Observing the 1980s Project. Users can click on additional links to a PDF of the panel member's report, and to an entry in the catalogue providing more information about them. Special Reports is the term given to spontaneous responses from Mass Observation Project Panel members, writing either outside the range of Directive topics or sending in further comment on a subject already covered at an earlier date. The Special Reports were selected for their relevance to themes addressed in the undergraduate history course ‘1984: Thatcher’s Britain’ at the University of Sussex.
