The show will be heard live on www.ntslive.co.uk Channel 2 at 1pm 19 October.
Andy, Care & Support Caseworker and show presenter said:
When I was Activity worker at Albion Road and Southwold, some customers expressed their dissatisfaction with the portrayal of older people in the media and said they would like to make their voices heard. I present on another regional station in London, so Fergus McDonnel of NTS Live asked me to record an hours’ speakeasy at both sites. He decided that the voices were so strong they needed no adornment or preamble, so what you see is what you get.
Customers discuss a range of topics including wartime experiences, growing up, parenting, working life, as well as what it’s like being a senior in Hackney.
Don’t forget to tune in! And if you can’t listen live, the show will be up at www.mixcloud.com/ntsradio after broadcast.
