Melvyn Braggs about East End heritage
Dear Ed... BROADCASTER Melvyn Bragg is presenting a 20-part series on BBC2 later in the year telling the history of modern Britain through archive film footage. The ‘Reel’ History of Britain.
We’ll be touring the country including East London in Britain’s only surviving vintage mobile cinema and would love to meet people with stories about how they and their families lived through the changes the 20th century brought.
We are filming in Stepney and the surrounding areas in April and would love to hear from anyone who moved into redevelopments in the 1930s when their old homes were cleared. Perhaps they have stories to tell, or photos, diaries or memories to share.
Gordon Hart, Assistant Producer
