Welcome to the Back in My Day archives! This is where we store the audio files of the interviews we did with older people and people in care.
Remember, the interview questions were drawn up by young people and they also managed the recording equipment and facilitated the interview - learning new skills as they went along! The recordings are varied and can be difficult to hear at times, but as you listen try to consider the noises you can hear - a tea trolley, doors opening and closing, the microphone being moved, the "click" of a photographer's camera, laughter and other day to day noises.
To hear an interview simply click on the person's name.
If you have any feedback, we'd love to hear it, please contact us!
