COMPUTING and engineering students in Huddersfield are staging a showcase of multi- media design and technology.

The event, Interactive Media 05, aims to promote the talent and skills of students at the university who have put together various exhibits and exhibitions.

John Kelly, a multimedia tutor, has created "Huddersfield's own detective mystery" in the form of a website after finding a mysterious bag in a Milnsbridge second-hand shop.

In the bag Mr Kelly discovered 20 years of photos and slides shot across three continents by a mystery family.

He said: "When I found the bag I didn't know the name of the photographer. I tracked him down through the cars that he owned, which are in some of the photographs.

"I now know he was called Jim Young and was around this area in the late 50s. He then moved to Taunton and eventually Scotland. It would be interesting if anyone local to the area remembers him or if he still has family in the area.

"I have designed the site,, like a movie - with a plot, cast and location sections - in the hope I can piece the whole story together."

Other pieces in the show display the diverse and entertaining nightlife in the town.

The show, at the university's Canalside West Building on Firth Street, runs until 6pm this evening, when the students will be putting on a private viewing.
