We have been approached by the BBC, who are making a 60 min TV documentary on the story of the family car in Britain, beginning after WW2 and going up the present day. We’re keen to cover the Ford Cortina and are interested in talking to people who love the Cortina and grew up with it as their family car and/or are still using it as a family vehicle today.
We’re looking more into the social aspect of this, rather than the technology and are looking for people who can tell a few stories and share some memories about their own family Cortina trips, talking about things like:
What is it about the Cortina that you love?
Do you remember when you’re Dad/Mum first brought it home?
Why did they buy it?
First family photo in front of the car? How did owning a car change family life?
1st drive/holiday in the car?
Was it safe and reliable?
How does it compare to family cars today…
Everything is pre-recorded and we are more than happy to travel to contributors. We are keen to come and film before or in the early part of February if possible.
At this stage we are just looking to have a bit of a chat with people about their memories and experiences so if anyone thinks they may be interested, please drop me an email with your number and maybe a bit about you (if you have time) and I’ll ensure to give you a call to have a bit of a chat over the phone. My email address is email@example.com
