interviewing elderly people is certainly not the easiest thing on earth though we enjoyed it and asked loads of questions.I will describe the kind of things we asked; firstly it was:
whats your name?
where did you grow up?
what was your favorite game and where did you play it?
and then we asked what games they played in different locations like school, home streets and gardens. we faced a few problems though some people had slow memory or hearing loss in addition to this many interviewers had to repeat questions over and over again and took a long time to answer on the whole they were very kind and loved to share their memories. one of our other difficulties is that sometimes we weren't making eye contact which Matt and Sav did point out.the cameras rolled smoothly and we all had fun the visitors had fun and we made something out of that. Via the huge 12 HOURS of footage!
