This are lots of local events that are designed to complement the new BBC Two series Reel History of Britain, which starts on Monday, September 5th on BBC2 at 1830 each week night for four weeks. More information can be found at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00yw2wc and the first four episodes are listed below:Date:
Mon 5th September
1/20: Britain’s Wartime Evacuees
In Torquay, Melvyn looks back to the 1940’s and wartime evacuation.

Melvyn Bragg is at the Big Pit Museum to view BFI films about coal mining in the 1930s.
The Reel History of Britain is a new, exciting 20 part series, in which Melvyn Bragg retells the fascinating stories of life in Britain from 1900 – 1970 through the archive collections of the British Film Institute and other National and Regional Film Archives. Travelling across the UK, Melvyn meets the members of the public who appeared in the historic films featured in the series, and brings them face-to-face with their relatives with the help of a 1967 custom built vintage mobile cinema.
Melvyn Bragg said: “At the turn of the last century one invention changed the way we recall our history forever – the motion camera. Thanks to Britain’s pioneering film-makers, we can still glimpse a world long gone.”
The BBC is also touring with it’s The Reel History of Britain Experience giving people the chance to learn more about their local history through film. The tour, which will visit Glasgow, Grimsby, Peterborough and Leicester, is free to attend, suitable for all ages and there is no need to book in advance.
I haven't blogged for a little while as I have been so busy sorting out new projects and making some big changes. Exciting things to come! Also, my lovely granny died and we have all had a very sad time as she was such an amazing lady and will be really missed.
As we're now into summer holidays, I have half a chance in getting back on track with my blogging and updates :)
Do take a look at my page on the Cambs History Fair and go to the bottom, where you will find an ever increasing list of this years exhibitors, put the event in your diary and come along!
I'm off for 3 days adventures now, hope you're all enjoying the weather

I had a lovely evening a couple of weeks ago at the Haddenham & Aldreth 1940’s pre-event to their amazing Blossoms & Bygones weekend which is coming up in May. The chapel in Aldreth was decked out in 1940’s gear, from banners and flags, clothes and furniture to a gramophone (working and playing great tunes) and original film projector and reels. The building was packed out for this lovely gathering and the evening kicked off with Mike Petty giving us a great talk about Cambs during WWII, I then followed with a brief stint about 1940’s makeup and style, finishing of the evening with a local chap giving his memories of the war - and of course there was a couple of lovely tea breaks with home made cake and bread and butter pudding. I can’t wait until the main event in May :)
In the meantime why not check out the Haddenham & Aldreth CCAN Group!
I am pleased to announce that we have another new Cambridgeshire Community Archive Group (CCAN). The beautiful village of Elton in the very far north west of Cambs has joined our brilliant community archives network. They have a very good village society and have a wonderful heritage project on the go, with exciting events such as their very own ‘Big Dig’ and the involvement of the whole community and village school is something to be admired. We are really looking forward to seeing the Elton CCAN group additions to the CCAN website.
CCAN is Cambridgeshire’s online community archive, a place to see old pictures, photos, written and recorded memories, pod-casts and video clips along with living history as groups record their activities from today for the history of tomorrow. If you would like to know more or get involved please Contact Me and I will help you.
