Tyneham DVD

Tyneham Remembered - Feature Length DVD

Tyneham remembered provides a fascinating insight into the lives of the villagers before the enforced evacuation in 1943. Comparing modern day footage with old black and white photos showing exactly what the village used to look like and what it was like living there.

Featuring compelling interviews with some of the residents that actually lived in Tyneham. Hear in their own words how they were forced out of their homes a few days before the Christmas of 1943. Hear their thoughts and feelings and how it was to return to their old homes. Featuring Arthur Grant, Peter Wellman and Doug Churchill amongst others. Including bonus footage and interviews from Pat Evans who as a member of the WRAF was stationed in Tyneham house and Barbara Swinburne who talks about her relatives ‘The Millers’ of Worbarrow Bay.


We were very impressed when we watched this DVD, not only with the visual quality, but with the detailed and informative naration that intersperses the interviews with the ex-residents themselves. It is a truly wonderful DVD and fascinating to watch. In particular, listening to Pat Evans talk about her time in the WRAF and how they were stationed in Tyneham House is outstanding. Also the interview with Mrs Bracci, who used to live in ‘the bungalow’ at Worbarrow Bay is very emotional and thought provoking.


In short, we can’t recommend this DVD enough. For anyone with an interest in Tyneham and the events that took place there, this DVD is a must have. Tyneham Remembered is available direct from our Tyneham online store.
