The runaway success of a video that takes a close look at Tamworth has prompted a sequel.
2,000 Years of Tamworth, released earlier this year, used cine-film footage donated by Tamworth Herald readers with information from the Herald archives to give a unique glimpse of how the town used to be.
Since its release, the video has continued to sell in large numbers and the Herald has now produced a follow up Tamworth – A Chronicle of the 20th Century.
The new film was made in conjunction with Heritage films and includes even more film footage, much of which was donated by readers in response to the first video.
It includes scenes of devastation from World War II and follows the rebuilding of Tamworth after the war.
Herald assistant editor and local history writer John Harper co-narrates the video along with Tamworth actor Geoff Rayson.
John said: “The Herald has been much involved with the project and we are delighted with the result. It offers a fascinating glimpse of the past and would be an ideal Christmas present for Tammies.”
