Do you want to know the real story of Tyneham?
If you want to know what really happened to Tyneham and it’s people, the Tyneham Remembered DVD is essential viewing.
It provides a fascinating insight into the lives of the villagers before they were forced to evacuate in 1943. It compares modern day footage with old black and white photos. The Tyneham DVD shows exactly how the village used to be and what it was like living there.
The production is excellent and the quality of the filming is very professional.
What makes this DVD so compelling is hearing about village life from the people who used to live there.
Interviews include the late Arthur Grant, Peter Wellman and Doug Churchill amongst others.
“It’s one thing reading about what life in Tyneham was like, but to actually hear about it from the people who lived there is magical“.
Hearing, in their own words, how they were forced to leave their homes is heartbreaking. Especially as it was just a few days before Christmas. You really feel the emotion when they return to their old homes for the interviews..
We really can’t recommend this DVD enough. It includes everything you need to know about Tyneham and Worbarrow Bay.
Apart from the main DVD, it includes bonus footage and interviews with Pat Evans. She was a member of the WAAF and was stationed in Tyneham house during the war.
At a length of 1 hour and 40 minutes there is so much information contained in the DVD.
It’s a sad to say, most of the people interviewed in Tyneham Remembered have now passed away. This DVD is now the only way to hear about life in Tyneham from the people who lived there.
I don’t know how much longer this DVD will be available so the more people who own it, the better. The information in this DVD needs to be preserved forever.
