Giddyness maps the process of the project Giddy and of pupils from Longhill School working with artist educator Annis Joslin to research material and collect the unusual and giddy oral histories of people who were aged 14-21 yrs in the 40's 50's and 60's in Brighton and Hove resulting in an app (and website) with an interactive map leading people across the city listening to memories in the place they were made.
This is a Nimbus Group project, supported by Heritage Lottery Fund. www.hlf.org.uk

Introduction to Screen Archive South East
Frank Gray from Screen Archive South East met with Longhill pupils today to introduce the film archive and show some potential material we could use including shots of Brighton streets and the beach from the 1950's, primary children from Knoll Primary school carrying on with lessons with their gas masks on from the 40's. Frank asked the group what life may have been like before television and showed some images from the Ice Rink in Brighton which was a popular activity and past time.
