Memoryshare: what is it?
Compile a record of life from 1900 to the present day with the BBC Memoryshare project. But what is it? Find out below...
The first of its kind, the BBC Memoryshare project invites you to help create a day-by-day account of life from 1st January, 1900 until the present day.
What is it?
It's a new BBC project being piloted on local BBC websites across the country. Memoryshare will gradually piece together an intriguing people's history of Britain, based on your experiences.

:: Write as much or as little as you like, whether it's 50 words or 500
:: You can also comment on other people's memories
