Give your past a future


A recent survey revealed that one of the biggest regrets for millions of people in Britain was not asking more about their parents’ and grandparents’ lives.

Bryher Scudamore found herself amongst these millions when her beloved mother, Peggy, died suddenly and unexpectedly from a heart attack. Reeling with the shock of realising her mother wasn’t invincible, Bryher realised as she was going through Peggy’s papers how much more there was to discover and desperately wished she had found out more during her mother’s lifetime.

She vowed to try and help others to avoid making the same mistake and after 12 years’ research at the age of 60, she founded autodotbiography.

Bryher – previously editor of ‘That’s Life!’ and BBC Online – joins me to explain how autodotbiography makes it easy for everyone to create a beautiful account of their life story, for their family, one that will be treasured for generations to come.

Bryher was recommended as a guest by her good friend Dame Esther Rantzen.
