Administrative/Biographical history:

This oral history project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and run by Saam Theatre Group. Its aim was to collect and present oral history testimonies of Iranian settlers in London. All the interviews were conducted by young London Iranians. The project ran from 2007-2008 and ended with an audio/visual exhibition of the finished interviews, which ran for three weeks from 1 May 2008.


Scope and content/abstract:

Records of the Saam Theatre Group oral history project. The collection consists of a description of the running of the project and typewritten transcripts of the eight interviews, and CD versions of the interviews with a video report on the running of the project on DVD. Because of their format, the CDs and DVD are currently available by appointment only.
