Films

Several films highlighting different aspects of the foundling story were made as part of the Foundling Voices project. These films combine sound extracts from the oral history interviews with photographs from the Foundling Hospital archive or images lent to us by former pupils. Life at School was edited by Nathalie Ginvert and Dan Haythorn, and the other films were created by students at Kingston University.
