National Life Stories
About This Show
Show Info: From its modest beginnings in 1987, National Life Stories has grown significantly and helped to create one of the largest oral history collections in the world – the British Library holds some 70,000 recordings of which nearly 3,000 are long, in-depth biographical interviews created by National Life Stories. Each episode of this podcast will bring you a conversation with someone else associated with National Life Stories – from interviewers, to curators, to listening service and technical staff. We’ll be using this medium to surface great interview extracts and try to get to the bottom of what we think is special about the life story approach to oral history.
