Oral history curator's choice

Number of items in collection: 255

Short description:

Recordings in this collection can be played by anyone.

The recordings clustered under the ‘Oral History curator’s choice’ are edited extracts from National Life Stories projects archived at the British Library.  Many of the extracts were originally edited for CD publications published by the British Library and project partners.

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  The interviews are historical documents and their language, tone and content might in some cases reflect attitudes that could cause offence in today’s society.
