'Whittaker' has discovered that the British Library’s “National Life Stories” oral history project includes 33 recordings of interviews about theatre design. It was a collaborative project with Wimbledon College of Art charting developments in post-war British theatre design.
We'd never have found this if we hadn't been reading that National Life Stories annual report! (Find it in our catalogue.)
How to FIND these magical recordings?
· Go to the British Library Sounds website and use the search box – you’ll find it here:- http://sounds.bl.uk/Search
· In the search box, type Theatre Design, and use the drop down category, Arts, Literature and Performance. You’ll get 33 results.
