1000 LONDONERS

This film is part of 1000 Londoners, a ten-year digital project which aims to create a digital portrait of a city through 1000 of the people who identify themselves with it. The profile contains a 3 minute film that gives an insight into the life of the Londoner, as well as their personal photos of London and some answers to crucial questions about their views on London life. Over the course of the project we aim to reveal as many facets of the capital as possible, seeing city life from 1000 points of view.

TRANSCRIPT

Yes I was born in 1934

at St Nicholas' Hospital, Plumstead.

which unfortunately doesn't exist any more.

We lived in Bodville Road, Woolwich.

And we got bombed out eventually.

I was evacuated up to my aunties at Blackpool.

I was up there for a few months.

Till I got fed up and I wanted to come back home.

And I left school when I was 15.

After that I got a job in Coop, at Lee Green.

I was bored madly.

Until I got to 18, and was called up to the National Service.

Well eventually I got posted to RAF, Biggin Hill.

I was in there for three years.

That was some of the best part of my life anyway.

I miss the service.

What did you vote?

To leave.

Mainly because we're spending too much money abroad.

In my opinion I don't think

I can't talk about it.

I don't want to say anything about it at all.

I've got nothing... I've lost interest.

The Conservatives and Labour and

they're all fighting just for themselves, they're not interested

I just can't put into words how I feel.

If we had another vote, I'd vote to leave again.

I wouldn't change my mind.

We've just got no control.

Get fed up with people telling us what we're doing in this country.

Laws and everything else.

We don't seem to fight for ourselves any more .

In fact, to be quite honest,

we were better off back in the war time.

Atmosphere was different in those days.

Most of the neighbours hardly...

don't talk as much as they used to

Nothing is like it used to be in the old days.
