Interview material collected in autumn 1983 was the basis of a professional touring Christmas show written by Chrys Salt with Pam Schweitzer. The dialogue of the show was drawn verbatim from the interviews and evoked many memories from a wide range of audiences across London and the south east. Older people remembered hard times in their childhoods when parents were coping with unemployment and frequent lay-offs, as well as happy memories of large family celebrations and childhood excitements.
