In 2009 The Baring Archive Limited commissioned An Oral History of Barings. The project was undertaken in partnership with National Life Stories at the British Library.
The extracts cover the following topics and range from the 1940s through to the 1990s.
The audio extracts included in this exhibition were selected from interviews made between 2009 and 2013. The original full length interviews are accessible at the British Library together with transcripts and content summaries. In some cases the interviews have been closed or partially closed to public access at the request of the speaker. Details of the full interviews can be found by searching the Sound & Moving Image Catalogue by interviewee name, keyword or by the collection reference number: C1367.
The extracts available here have been edited but every effort has been made to maintain the integrity and spirit of what was said. The views expressed are not necessarily those of The Baring Archive or National Life Stories at the British Library.
The copyright of all extracts is held by The British Library Board and The Baring Archive Limited 2012.
