Casting details

New BBC series uncovers the hidden histories of the Blitz and we want to hear your stories.

Between 1940 and 1941 Britain experienced months of relentless bombardment from the air as enemy aircraft swarmed our skies waging a brutal war aimed directly at British civilians.

Examining in close-up detail the bombs that fell on our city streets in those dark hours, we are going tell the stories of those who lived and worked in buildings that were obliterated, as well as those of the people who were called upon to save, heal, or rally them.

Do you or one of your relatives have a personal story connected to one life-changing night during the Blitz? 

Were family members lost, did friends disappear, or were colleagues bravely sacrificed?  

Perhaps your parents or grandparents narrowly escaped a bomb, or heroically joined in to rescue their neighbours, and their story is as yet untold?

Would you like to tell your tale of tragedy, survival or heroism, remembering what was lost and what so many rigorously fought for?


If you have an incredible connection to life during the Blitz in Bristol, Hull, Glasgow, Clydebank and London’s East End, we’d like to know.

Please send through an outline of your story with the headline ‘BLITZ’, along with your name, age, current address, and contact details to:
