The memories of our interviewees have been added to the collection of the Working Class Movement Library. We were keen that these stories and experiences be kept alive in a variety of ways.
We have been working with history and music students from Buile Hill Visual Arts College to produce a modern version of Ewan’s MacColl’s innovative 1950s Radio Ballads, based on extracts from our interviews.
There is a Radio Ballad for each workplace, available both as audio only or as a video, including animations produced by the Buile Hill students.
