Next year, BBC 2 is launching a new series which will travel the country in a hunt for the nation’s home movie archive to tell the nation’s story through the eyes of its most important historians: the British people.
They are looking for any amateur-filmed footage that reflects the events of the last seventy years. It might be footage of the summer of 1976, or a summer in Brighton. It might be street parties celebrating the Coronation, Jubilee or the Royal Weddings, people’s hobbies or the big events in their life – perhaps an important wedding or birthday party. Beatlemania or political demonstrations.
They are particularly interested in footage of local festivals, or people who perhaps went on to be famous. Also anything connected with Royalty, or the opening of important buildings in the area.
They are throwing the net very wide, and are interested to hear from individuals or organisations about what they think is of importance and what deserves to be seen on the small screen.
Old cine, video or film footage in any format is acceptable and the film company is guarantees safe return. If any clips are used in the series, a fee will be paid.
