Request for 1962 TV / radio archive
Submitted by markrob on Fri, 2020-02-21 13:34
I am a Hong Kong-based TV producer working on behalf of the British ITV series Long Lost Families. We are currently producing an episode about a Chinese woman who was abandoned as a baby in a shop doorway in Kowloon in 1960. After spending 2 years in various children’s homes she was then adopted by a British family. She was flown together with other adopted ‘HK Foundlings' to the UK in December 1962, where she has now spent the last 60 years. We are trying to help her trace her family background and I am helping the UK-based production team.
We are keen to source any radio or TV footage relating to the adopted babies' journey to the UK in December 1962. Their BOAC flight departed on December 19th / 20th 1962. If you have such archive footage or have any suggestions of where to obtain archive footage from that date please let me know.
I look forward to hearing from you.
