I am writing to let you know about a really great thing. A few months ago, I was contacted by some of the children at Sandylands primary school. They were looking into a case (from around Garrow’s period) of two children who were found guilty of stealing and transported to Australia.
They came up to London with their teacher and we spent a very enjoyable morning together in Lincoln’s Inn. The children asked me some questions about the period and the interview is online on their site.
The site is a really fun thing to have a look at. What I enjoyed was their re-creation of the trial of young George and Elizabeth. In addition to all of the actors, they have absolutely fantastic and creative wigs! Anyway, I think all of the work on the project is fantastic and everyone who took part in it – in front of the camera and behind the scenes – deserves warm congratulations.
Well done Sandylands!
