Generation’s memories needed for TV documentary

First published in Letters

Sir – Testimony Films is making a new documentary series for BBC2 paying tribute to Britain’s Greatest Generation.

We want to hear from men and women in their late 80s, 90s and 100s who have vivid and interesting stories to tell from their past.

From childhood to war; romance to retirement – this generation has experienced the most radical amount of change within their lifetime than any other.

Their memories and values are hugely important for educating and inspiring our future generations.

Do you have interesting tales of childhood in the 1920s and 1930s? Did you serve in uniform during the Second World War or keep the home fires burning? Have you found a new lease of life since retirement?

Are your children or grandchildren fascinated by your tales of the past?

If so, we would love to talk to you about your story.

If you would like to share your memories with us, please get in touch with Pete, Emily or Sara. Call us on 0117 925 8589, email me at or write to the address below.

Pete Vance, Assistant Producer, Testimony Films, 12 Great George Street, Bristol, BS1 5RH
