Silver Screens

(2012 – 2013)

“Silver Screens” was an exciting new inter-generational, oral history project for Dawlish in South Devon about cinema-going in the 1930s-50s. A group of volunteers – some newly-retired and some young people learned digital recording & editing skills at Red Rock Centre and then oral history skills with Folk South West. They then visited three different residential care settings to record the residents’ memories of cinema-going in their youth. They watched a period film together. Once all the recordings had been completed, they were edited into a 45-minute-long CD that was distributed to all the participants and schools & museums as a learning tool for the future. The CD is available here
