A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
Focusing mainly on audio production, a group of local young people were trained in interview and recording skills to enable them to speak to older people about living in the Bowes Park. Jude's colleague Eric Whelan worked on the project guiding the young people from interviewing techniques through to the editing of the resulting audioand video material.
The topics covered ranged from growing up and raising children in the area to the changes that the neighbourhood has gone through in recent years.
One of the older people, Terry, also took the younger people on a walking tour of the area. Terry has spent all of his life living on the same street and so has unrivaled knowledge of the area. He was able to talk about the different shops and even told of a token-based payment system used by Williams Bros, the local grocery store.

The young people were also trained in audio editing skills, editing the interviews they had conducted into short features on the older people who took part. They selected key clips from the interviews and structured them into one solid story or profile.
