Audiobook logoInspired by the 2012 Olympiad, these recordings were made by the young people of Buckfastleigh. The youngsters were keen to find out how the older generation spent their leisure time when they were growing up. There are some fabulous memories in these vox pop - voice recordings - which are hosted on Audioboo. Have a listen and see if any strike a chord with you!
