Do you have memories relating to the Britannia Bridge, especially the 1970 fire and the subsequent rebuild? Do you have any home movie footage from the period?
Rondo Media, a Caernarfon based production company, are looking for home movie footage of the Britannia Bridge, Menai Bridge and surrounding areas from the 1960s through to the present day. The footage could be from boats on the straits, footage of the fire, the rebuild or the opening day of the road bridge. Anything which gives a sense of place and time. This is for a documentary for S4C and BBC celebrating the history of the Britannia Bridge.
We are also interested in speaking to people who have been in any way involved with the bridge over the years, especially eyewitnesses to the fire and people who were involved in the remarkable rebuild.
