Tanks for the Memory by Fieldwork

Summary

Features the songs and music from the latest of a series of successful folk musicals written by Mick Ryan and performed by the Fieldwork Theatre Company. The music is interwoven with original speech from the show, which makes the album attractive and understandable to those who have not seen the show itself. The production tells the story of Dorsets ghost village of Tyneham. It used to be a beautiful and well loved place but in 1943, the area was needed by the army, who gave the residents one months notice to leave and a promise that after the war was over, they would be able to return. The promise was broken. The show tells of the villagers sad departure and of their long and fruitless fight for justice
