Kathleen Hann was born into a poor working-class family in the Black Country during the depression of the nineteen thirties. She was a clever child at a time when it wasn't thought poor children could be clever, when ridicule was the only way the mediocre teachers knew how to deal with the situation. This is a book to make you laugh and cry as the author revisits her past and evokes many of the outrageous and picaresque charcters of her childhood, her youth and early womanhood. She was one of a hundred people in Shropshire chosen by the BBC to appear on the programme, The Century Speaks, in which the BBC called for people to give their views on Shropshire. This book is living history, experienced in the raw and tested on the pulses of a real participant whose vision of those times, while sympathetic, sincere and humorous, is never coloured by rose-tinted lenses. She has not given us a dry treatise of social history, but a slice of life that will forever remain with the reader.

Much family history focuses on digging around archives and web searches. Here, Karen Foy shows that our attics and cupboards can often hide a treasure trove of personal documents and ephemera. Boxes full of photographs, hastily written notes, old tickets, postcards, ration books, a soldier’s hat, a bundle of letters, perhaps a diary, are all invaluable sources of information about our family history. These are crucial in piecing together the everyday lives of our ancestors, exposing secrets, and family relationships. You might discover favourite family recipes, information about their schooldays, reconstruct a Victorian family holiday. This book guides you through 200 years of different types of memorabilia: how to interpret them and how to use them to make your own family history – perhaps making a scrapbook or website.
Veramarykin is the story of a child in the 1930s and 40s, which contains Vera M Hughes’ lively memories of family life in the London County Council’s new housing estate in Downham near Bromley – where parents from areas of overcrowding brought up their families in good times and bad. Vera relates, with a wealth of anecdotes and family photos, her progression through childhood, adolescence and the beginning of adulthood, when she left school in 1945 to take her place in the world as a wage-earner. The story begins in the early 1930s with childhood games, dollies’ tea parties, the dreaded dentist, tales of a dangerous fish and a murderous budgie and a brother’s teasing. The annual family seaside holidays were eagerly anticipated and enjoyed, and very little of the world outside her home impinged on her childhood. However life changed in 1938 with a move to larger accommodation in another council estate, coinciding with a change of school and resulting in the loss of familiar ways and friends. Evacuation at the start of the Second World War in 1939 brought another upheaval until Vera’s return home – just in time for the Blitz – re-established family life and stability. The trials of life in wartime had simply to be accepted and endured, and although comparatively unscathed by bombs, the devastating effects of doodlebugs and rockets made themselves felt. Close involvement with the Scout and Guide movements in early adolescence provided lifelong friends whose subsequent wartime service in the Forces left a gap that was filled with correspondence until their safe return.

Hand-Made Television explores the ongoing enchantment of many of the much-loved stop-frame children's television programmes of 1960s and 1970s Britain. The first academic work to analyse programmes such as Pogles' Wood (1966), Clangers (1969), Bagpuss (1974) (Smallfilms) and Gordon Murray's Camberwick Green (1966), Trumpton (1967) and Chigley (1969), the book connects these series to their social and historical contexts while providing in-depth analyses of their themes and hand-made aesthetics. Hand-Made Television shows that the appeal of these programmes is rooted not only in their participatory address and evocation of a pastoral English past, but also in the connection of their stop-frame aesthetics to the actions of childhood play. This book makes a significant contribution to both Animation Studies and Television Studies; combining scholarly rigour with an accessible style, it is suitable for scholars as well as fans of these iconic British children's programmes.
