This week, I’ll be talking to Jacqui Carroll of REELmcr about their film Our Sam, the Middleton Man.
Our Sam, the Middleton Man is a new community film which recognises Peterloo legend Sam Bamford. Samuel Bamford is beyond doubt Middleton’s most famous ‘forgotten’ son, having inspired a call for an end to poverty and the beginning of democracy, and having led a group of marchers from Middleton to St Peter’s Fields in August 1819.
The film is being screened at Manchester Central Library on Thursday 27th June. Further screenings will take place at Touchstones, Rochdale, Stockport Library, the Working Class Movement Library and the Miners Community Arts and Music Centre in Moston.
I’ll be talking to Jacqui about the film, and about Samuel Bamford’s relevance to modern-day Middleton. And, of course, I’ll also be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers in the second hour!
