We have received a request (24.10.18) From Louise Bracken a Researcher at BBC.
“ I wondered if you might be able to help me with something for the Remembrance performances at the Royal Albert Hall (10.11.18) . We are producing some short VTs. As I said, these will be broadcast on BBC One and shown to the audience in the Royal Albert Hall. One of these films will feature descendants holding a photograph of their relative from the First World War and sharing a piece of information about them. We are filming in different locations around Britain, with a variety of stories from across the conflict.
Alongside the short film we will have 50 descendants walk through the Royal Albert Hall holding a photograph of their descendant. I really would like to equally and fairly represent all soldiers in World War One during this moment, including those who served with the Royal Navy, and I am doing my absolute best to investigate all avenues to try and do so. I wondered if you might be able to help me find some descendants of Naval Soldiers who would like to walk in the Royal Albert Hall and/or to take part in our VT, potentially drawing on any info you may have collated or descendants that you may already be in touch with?"
Any questions, please do let me know.
