HIGH STREET HISTORY ‘TURN BACK TIME’

An exciting new 6 part television series this Autumn called TURN BACK TIME from BBC Learning will drive people to visit archives, museums, libraries and local societies to research the history of their local high street. Sign up now to get involved and receive free BBC resources!

The series will tell the story of the high street by propelling a parade of shops through 100 years of fast-forward history. Five modern day shopkeepers with a genuine enthusiasm for past trades will be challenged to go back in time. The series will be similar to the family history programme ‘Who Do You Think You Are?’ so is likely to generate a huge amount of interest in local history. The programme website will give tips and advice about how to get started and will encourage people to visit museums, archives and libraries to uncover the history of their high street.

There are various ways that you can get involved, from the small scale such as simply showcasing old photographs on the BBC’s Flickr group to getting ‘hands on’ by running a High Street History themed community project or activity.
