BBC local radio searches for WW1 stories

BBC local radio stations are attempting to gather 1400 stories from across the UK as part of the BBC’s WW1 Centenary coverage.

The project involves 40 radio producers from across the UK who are currently collecting the stories, which will also feature on TV and online.

Partnerships with the Imperial War Museum and BBC Learning will create eight large scale World War One events such as the building of trenches that will be at various locations around the UK.

The first wave of stories are broadcast from Monday February 24th on BBC local radio stations in England.
