Do You Have Vivid Childhood Playground Memories?

Posted on: 31 October 2008 by Gareth Hargreaves

Wanted: children of the 20th century to share childhood memories - and Ford drivers.

Do you remember the playground games you used to play? Were there any significant events in your childhood, for instance war, or a break up of the family?

Were you the naughty child that got up to mischief? Were you bullied as a child - or were you the bully?

Those with a story to tell can contact award winning social history production company Testimony Films, makers of Pocket Full Of Posies on BBC1, Green And Pleasant Land on Channel 4 and Britain’s Love Story on ITV1, who are making an hour long programme tracing childhood games and outdoor play in the last century.

Testimony Films would also like to hear how your Ford car changed your life; perhaps you have memories of incredible journeys, perhaps you have an unusual car or maybe you found romance on the road?

Perhaps you are the oldest Ford-driver in the country? Did you drive a Ford Model T? Or if you, your partner or family owned a Ford car or worked at Dagenham in the 50s 60s 70s or 80s and have interesting stories to tell, photographs or home movies of you and your car during these decades, then you may be exactly what Testimony are looking for.

Testimony Films is run by social historian Dr Steve Humphries who has made several critically acclaimed and award winning documentaries over the last 15 years, namely Veterans: Last Survivors Of The Great War (BBC1), Ground Zero (Channel 4) and The 50s & 60s In Living Colour (ITV1).

If you have any interesting stories and memories of your childhood then please contact Clair Titley on 0117 925 8589, email or write to Ford Appeal, 12 Great George Street, Bristol, BS1 5RH.
