A major three-year project starting in January 2014, it will give people in 15 of London's Outer Boroughs a chance to see and learn about historic film of their area and encourage them to share their own home movie records of the region's past.

"This groundbreaking project will explore London's history through the medium of film over the past 50 years," says Sue Bowers, Head of the Heritage Lottery Fund for London. "Aiming to open up a visual window onto a world gone by through the discovery of public information films, home movies, and newsreel the project will engage people of all ages across the capital to get involved and help bring alive this fascinating aspect of our history."

Our Heritage and Local Studies team is a partner of 'London: A Bigger Picture' and will be hosting a number of talks and events as part of the project over the next three years.
