Memory Bank is the Yorkshire Film Archive’s ground breaking resource that combines archive film with discussion ideas, activities, photos and information spanning six decades. Great for memory work and reminiscence therapy, Memory Bank helps unlock the past to connect it to the present.
In Memory Bank Domestic Life you’ll find a selection of films that take you back to the early days of supermarket shopping, coach built prams, tin baths, and the simple pleasure of shelling peas freshly picked from the garden.
In Memory Bank Working Life you will find a selection of films that take us back to the times of clocking on for work, life on the production line for both men and women, the everyday jobs that we all take for granted like the dustbin collections, and even how our fish and chips are landed on our plate – or newspaper!
We're pleased to confirm that we can now accept payment for Memory Bank packs by credit or debit card, over the phone. If you'd like to place an order, just give us a call on 01904 876550 and we'll be pleased to help.
Development of Memory Bank was funded by Screen Heritage UK Programme: a partnership between the British Film Institute,
Screen Yorkshire and English Regional Film Archives, to safeguard the future of the UK’s National and Regional Film Archives. Funded by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.
Our thanks also to current funders: The Dunhill Medical Trust.
