In response to the changing times in the 1970s, the exhibition has revisited the children of that time, who are now in their forties or fifties. A film was made in 1972, titled 'the Base of a Spiral', which focussed on three schools: Hamilton Lodge, Ovingdean Hall and St Thomas; one narrator was in that film. Their stories have been captured on video, using life history methods, and are exhibited on line. Their stories create a response to the education of its time, which include both cherished and difficult memories.
