This week we are launching the sixth and final podcast in our series.  Once again our Young Reporters go the behind the scenes  and talk to our local residents and friends of IWM London to see what the local communities think about the major changes taking place as part of Transforming IWM London.

I particularly love this sixth and final podcast because it reminds us how close a community we have and what an important place IWM London is for so many people.  Working for IWM London I often hear people’s stories of their first memories of coming and why they love our family of five museums.

This week’s podcast gives you a chance for you to hear a couple these stories brought to you by our fantastic IWM Young Reporters.  Listen to the last in our six-part series of IWM Young Reporters’ exclusive podcasts below:

Our Young Reporters are from local schools Archbishop Sumner and Oasis Academy Johanna.  In this part of the Young Reporters two year project they made these fantastic podcasts with the support of Lambeth College Radio students.  The Young Reporters project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
