THE INTERVIEWS HAVE BEGUN.....

The training is over and now the hard work begins as we start to interview. It is our aim to interview 50 people who have a connection to the 50 year heritage of The Metropolitan Cathedral. These interviews will then be archived and some highlighted edits will form an intriguing audio trail which will launch along Hope Street in the middle of May.

On Monday the research group carried out 3 interviews starting off With Dr. Williams who had been a local resident for over 40 years and had a vast knowledge of the historical landscape. The group then interviewed Dermott O'Connor who had met the Queen when she visited the Metropolitan Cathedral in 1991. Dermott had a range of memories, anecdotes and also brought along a fascinating scarp book. Our day finished with a very engaging interview with Spencer Leigh from BBC Radio Merseyside who shared numerous anecdotes from Liverpool's cultural scene in 1967 the year the Cathedral opened. 

The next interviews are scheduled for Thursday, Friday and Saturday, By the end of the week we would have reached 18 interviews, not a bad a start....
