Our Heroes: Their Stories

"Our Heroes: Their Stories" features interviews, footage and still photography, telling the stories of South Tyneside's service men and women.

The film includes moving stories from serving personnel and veterans, and shows how South Tyneside was affected by the First and Second World Wars as well as more recent conflicts in Korea, Borneo, the Falklands, Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan.

The film, which was shot by North East company Media Partnership, was part of a major exhibition funded by the Ministry of Defence that appeared in local libraries from June to September 2013.

The exhibition included historic photos and artefacts from the world wars as well as more recent conflicts.
