ARE YOU OVER 75, AND DID YOU LIVE IN KINGSTON UPON HULL DURING THE BLITZ?
I work as a researcher for Testimony Films.Testimony films is a specialist oral history documentary film company (makers of the award winning 7/7: Angels of Edgware Road – Channel 4, What Did You Do In The Great War Daddy – BBC4 and Horror on the Home Front – BBC2). I am currently researching a World War 2 television documentary for Channel 5, about the devastating effect that continual bombing raids had on the major cities of the UK.
Through this project we hope to create a vivid picture of the experiences of civilians across the nation, during those fateful years.
I am particularly interested in the memories of people who lived through the Hull Blitz. Hull was the 2nd worst bombed city in the UK, and morale was seriously tested.I understand that the people of Hull were extraordinarily brave, and pulled together to support one another, in the face of tragedy.
I am looking to talk to anyone over the age of 75, who was living in Hull, and may have memories of this time that they would be willing to share.This project is particularly important as it will be the last time that we can record this unique generation’s account of this landmark period in history.
If you are interested in speaking to us, at this stage all information is dealt with sensitively, and is confidential and is for research purposes only.
I look forward to hearing from you.With very best wishes.
