World War II: Unheard Memories - Family

Watch Deaf people's memories of stories involving their family during WW2

Documentary. In World War II: Unheard Memories, Deaf people tell their previously hidden stories about living in wartime Britain in their own language, British Sign Language.

After Episode 1 and Episode 2 were released, six clips of remarkable stories that didn't make it into the final programmes were produced for our website.

In this first clip, about the subject of family, John McLean from Peterhead explains how buying an ice cream got him in trouble, Dennis Anthony from Lancaster tells how he and his family kept safe during the bombings, and Gloria Pullen from Bristol tells her story about when a bomb landed while her family were in church. We also see stories from Bernard Hatton from Rochdale and Vera Hunt from Maidenhead.
