All Our Stories 

All Our Stories, a one-off programme during the summer of 2012, was an opportunity for everyone to get involved in their heritage. With our funding and support you could plan activities that help you explore, share and celebrate yours.

The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) developed All Our Stories in support of the BBC’s The Great British Story – A People’s History. Presented by Michael Wood, the new series was broadcast on BBC Two.
