Magical Morecambe by Fred Robinson

Please tell us about yourself.
I am seventy-years-of-age and have been retired since 1991 after a lifetime career working in the aerospace industry.

The majority of this time was spent in Bristol, although the nature of the work enabled me to travel world-wide.

I have been married for 49 years, and have three grown up children. My wife and myself were both brought up in the north-west of England, and we are happy to be living in this area since we moved from the south-west more than eight years ago.

My interests include IT and computers in general, and this workshop has enabled me to learn new skills in this direction.

What’s your story about?
My story covers a period from the late 1930’s to the end of the Second World War. It is about family holidays spent as a child in Morecambe.

Why did you choose to tell this particular story?
My father died in 1978, and I have fond memories of our relationship when I was a child. This was an opportunity to share some of these memories, for which I was most grateful.

What was the experience of making your digital story like?
Rather intense concentration required. Most enjoyable experience. The relationship with other members of the Storytelling group, and the BBC team was wonderful, especially considering the short space of time we had to get to know each other.
