Were you living in Norfolk during the 1940s, 1950s and the 1960s?
Can you remember the first time you saw television or your earliest memories of when you watched it regularly?
If so then you are exactly the type of person that I’d like to speak to!
As part of my PhD research I’m looking to undertake a series of oral history interviews to try and better understand when people in Norfolk were first exposed to television and what it was like for them. I’m going to be travelling around Norfolk, speaking to the amazing people of the county and recording their stories and memories of television for this truly unique project. There are no right or wrong answers, I’m just interested in hearing about what people remember about television during this period.
The interviews will be digitally recorded and portions of them may be included in my PhD Thesis in transcribed or audio form or in other publications if consent is given. Should you wish to remain anonymous then I will ensure that personal details are removed from any material that may be used. Please be assured that any personal data collected will be retained in an encrypted format and only for as long as necessary.
The project has been approved by the General Research Ethics Committee (GREC) at the University of East Anglia.
