Your film will have the same production values as any high- quality television documentary.

"My father and I re-visited the spot where he landed on D-Day. It was so was moving to listen to his memories, told in his own words.

I understood the value of recording this first hand history lesson for myself, my own children and the generations which will follow.

(Antony Draper - Director, Portrait Films)

"I love listening to people's stories - little details that they haven't talked about for years. It's often easier to talk to a stranger. Many enjoy recalling valued friendships, others want to leave advice for future generations. We are all a bit dynastic and shouldn't be embarrassed by it."

(Susan Collins - Director, Portrait Films)
