As parter of a larger 18 month project, Home Front Film, supported by a grant of £59,900 from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Digital Drama trained 35 volunteers across London to deliver reminiscence and recording workshops to gather the memories of 90 older residents in 6 London boroughs of Camden, Ealing, Hounslow, Kingston, Croydon and Merton. Working with the Heritage and Archive departments of these 6 boroughs, Digital Drama have edited WW2 childhood memories together with the archive footage to create 4 new films themed Digging for Victory, Bombs & the Blitz, Evacuation and VE/VJ Day.
