The pupils attended workshops with oral history and filming specialists, facilitated by Digital Works. The workshops taught the pupils about the importance of oral history, how to conduct an oral history interview as well as film and sound recording techniques.

The children used these skills to interview and film ex-employees of the David Evans factory in Crayford as well as local historian Peter Daniel.
