Postman's Knock - Episode 2
To celebrate the 360th anniversary of the establishment of the General Post Office this intergenerational oral history project explores the history of postal workers in London going back to the 1940s. As a major employer in the capital, it records how work has been impacted by significant post-war changes in technology, public perception, finance and ownership. It looks at the changing nature of work at one of London's major employers; the generations of family members who have worked for the Post Office; the nuts and bolts of work whether out on delivery on foot, bike and van, in sorting offices, on the mail rail. It shows the increasing inclusion of women and immigrants in the workforce over the post war period and the technological changes that have characterised the history over this period from the growth of telecommunications, mechanisation, advent of postcodes in 1974. It also explores the impact of political changes from Nationalisation in 1969 to the gradual changes introducing the market and competition from 2004 leading to privatisation.

The 7th and final episode is called “Theatre of Dreams” and Griffin Park itself takes centre stage.Fans recall the days when the terraces were full, when the Royal Oak was in its heyday and when you needed to turn up early to guarantee you’d get into the ground. And then there were the relegation years when just a few thousand fans would turn up, rattling around the near empty ground, the die-hards who would recall the former glory days while hoping for better days to come.There’s talk of the ground itself, the dire toilets, the old fashioned floodlights and magic of the evening games as well as memories of proud moments on the terraces.Finally, fans talk about what the club and ground have meant to them over the years, their feelings about leaving Griffin Park and their hopes for the future of this wonderful club.Push Up Brentford is an oral history project set up to commemorate the last year the club will play at Griffin Park, their home for 116 years. We have interviewed fans, young and old, as well as players and managers to uncover their personal stories.We have created a fascinating living history of Brentford Football Club, starring the people who have made it such a special place over the years.The project is run by volunteers, many of them Brentford fans, and supported by Arts and Education charity, digital:works.The music was written and performed by Robb Johnson.The project was funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund and supported by Brentford Football Club.Produced by digital:works: www.digital-works.co.uk/Listen to the full interviews and find out more about the project at www.pushupbrentford.org.uk/

Episode 5 is called ‘Sidelines and Bylines’ and talks to some of the people that have worked at the club.Huw Powell served his apprenticeship as a photo journalist with the Surrey Comet before going on to work for several local newspapers from the mid 1980s until 2015. He covered Brentford Football Club over those years, sitting on the touchline come rain or shine, developing friendships with players, and a love for the club.Jim Levack has worked as a journalist covering Brentford Football Club since the 1980s with the Middlesex Chronicle. He has had to report at times when some of the owners in the past did not necessarily have the club’s best interests at heart. We also talked to two former Brentford players about their time at the club. Alan Hawley played his first game as a professional in 1962 aged just 16. He left 12 years later after playing over 300 games.  Marcus Gayle joined the youth squad aged 14 and played his first game as an 18 year-old in 1988.
