Working with a professional film-maker, students from Abbey College in Ramsey have interviewed, filmed and re-enacted local people's memories of growing up in the Fen.
From memories of wartime bombers filling the skies, to farming on hands and knees, the full 37 mins film includes dramatisations, and archive photos and film, including footage of the large copper butterfly, now extinct in the UK.
The DVD is available in the Great Fen shop or from the Great Fen team for a suggested donation of £5. It includes 'Behind the Scenes' and a subtitled option.
