Filmed Oral History Interviews
John and Bernie Hills are two true sons of Sussex. Not only have they lived in the village of Stedham (near Midhurst) all their lives, you can still hear their Sussex accents. So rare is the old accent now, that some people have asked the brothers what part of the country they are from – not realising theirs is the original local accent.
This interview is full of fascinating detail about country life, the village school, memories from the Second World War, and the people and events who have shaped the lives of these two indomitable village worthies.
The brothers have contrasting personalities and style, which offers another level of interest and engagement for the viewer.
