One of the best things I've seen done on Portobello. The Veg stall holders - the unsung heroes of the area. The way everyone tells their stories to the children interviewing them put TV 'journalists' to shame. Thank you for a job worth doing and done so well.
Very impressive, informative and real. I lived in the area from '85 and have seen the changes which I hope won't change much more but good to understand it's beginnings. Thank you.

Well done to all the children involved in making this documentary. I grew up in this area some 40 years ago and it really brought back some wonderful memories. Please keep up the good work.
Great! Good to get children interested in the history and importance of their local community.
