37. South Sudan 1979 with Patti Langton
Patti takes us into the beautiful remote village of Napongayit in South Sudan and introduces us to the lives of the Larim people and her life-changing visit in 1979.
Patti has always been fascinated by different ways of living, which led her to study social anthropology at Oxford, living in Sri Lanka and South Sudan. Then she became an award-winning BBC producer of documentaries looking at social and ecological issues facing people in Africa and Asia. These days she’s a Research Associate of the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford, and her photos, research notes and music from South Sudan can all be found on the Pitt Rivers Museum’s website.
36. Ireland - Brian Bannigan
During the early 1970’s times were hard for Brian and Susie Bannigan. They'd previously left Ireland to come to England in the early 60's. Now with a gaggle of ten boys Brian was working at the Corby Steelworks. He was also driving taxis and coaches in between shifts, some nights and on days off.
Thinking that life overseas might bring more opportunities, he contemplated a life in Australia like so many others at the time; but naturally sad at the thought he might never again see his homeland again he wrote a poem to capture his thoughts.
Eamonn, his son recorded him reading this poem around 12 years ago purely to capture his voice. It was never intended for a public audience and hasn't been professionally recorded. Today is his birthday and ten years since his passing. Today we celebrate his voice, his love of storytelling and to share his poem. We think he would have loved it. Enjoy and be sure to capture all those special memories and voices while you can x
