David Hall, (producer, director and author responsible for the popular Fred Dibnah programmes on BBC2) is currently writing a new book. ‘Working Lives’ will tell the stories of some of the people that worked in Britain’s major industrial industries in the 1950’s & 60’s, when this Country was still considered the workshop of the world.
It’s the stories of your work, life and times that we want to hear and feel should be preserved. We’re looking for people who’d be happy to spare an hour to talk about memories from their earlier lives and about the communities they were part of. The jobs you had and what they entailed; social and family life, local traditions, courting rituals, the hardships and the pleasures in life, works outings, the decline of industry and the affect it had upon your community…. your memories of Britain in the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s.
If you think that you, or someone you know would like to contribute to the book please do not hesitate to contact Kathryn on: 0113 249 3001 or
