Name of Project/Course

Refreshing Memories [Oral History and Multi-Media Programme]


This project aims to provide information, using oral history, to bridge any existing gap between the generations.

Senior citizens will be invited to talk about their years of history, including those seniors born and brought up in the British Commonwealth  and non Commonwealth countries, and who are now living and settled  in the UK.

Their oral recollection would be recorded by young people and used as education and training resources, by educators and others, who think that the information gathered contained part of a key to help children and young people.

This is particularly to those from Black and minority ethnic communities, for recognising their heritage. Information which is not readily available in British educational institutions. The recording will be done on ‘state of the art’ audio and video equipment for proper documentation and storage. The education and training elements of this course are built in the project it self.

The end product will be offered on loan to local museums and archives, schools, colleges and others.

Target groups

Those age 50 plus and young people doing the research, interview and recording 18-25 years old, from various social backgrounds.

Number benefiting



Based initially at the Priory Community Centre, but easily duplicated and operated at any suitable local venue


Sept. 2014/15

How long & What time

2.5 hours per session, including live recording, inter-action between young people and seniors over 12 week period . Roll on programme.


Students, who were engaged in research, interviews, video taping, indexing, editing and presenting the outcomes, to a wider audience, will have learnt new skills, which could transfer into gaining further studies and qualifications in the specific multi-media field. The seniors will have been able to pass on valuable memories to a younger generation, which, hopefully, will assist the young to understand history better, showing how the past can influence the present and the future. With this type of inter-actions between young and older, import social bridges are built and hopefully, contribute to a better societal understanding among the generations, as Britain’s population grows older.
