Short description:

Recordings in this collection can be played by anyone.

In-depth oral history interviews documenting the lives and careers of those who worked in the electricity, water, steel and oil and gas industries in the UK over the past century.

Oral history recordings provide valuable first-hand testimony of the past.  The views and opinions expressed in oral history interviews are those of the interviewees, who describe events from their own perspective.  The interviews are historical documents and their language, tone and content might in some cases reflect attitudes that could cause offence in today’s society.
