View From Leicester

Making Things (Happen)

Radio Throughout Britain


This production for View From Leicester 2016 (VFL16) was made by Mark Doyle. It is a podcast that presents one of the darkest times in British history up to the present with reference to some events in British history in between.

For this podcast, I thought about how life was back in the 1940s and how times may have changed for the better since the end of the Second World War, and how people now have very different lives.

I took audio from the British Council Film Collection (BCFC) and added it to my podcast with sound effects and events that have happened over the past 70 years to indicate the passing of time.

My podcast focuses on wartime sounds and voices and skips though a few more recent events in British history to travel to the present. I see this as a patriotic story.
