"The man-in-the-street may not make the history books, but people in the past at least had their rites of passage recorded. If they fell by the wayside the workhouse was there to offer some relief and perhaps a form of escape. Other diversions included the village bands."
The speakers are:
- Valerie Henstock: Reading between the Lines - Stories from Parish Registers
- Peter Hammond: Joseph Woolley, the Diary of a Framework Knitter
- Victoria Preece: A Common Fate - People in the Workhouse
- Chris Weir: When the Bands Played On
