The department of journalism at Liverpool John Moores University and the National Union of Journalists have been working together to produce an oral history of journalism and the union in order to celebrate the union's centenary in June 2007.


The project is entitled 'Oral History of the NUJ' and has an associated website called 'On the Record' (where you now are). The site is an ideal platform for fascinating anecdotes and memoirs from journalists working in all sectors of the industry.

Key subjects to be revealed in the material are the media's change over the past century, the advances in technology and communications, the rise of tabloid celebrity, industrial disputes, and the day-to-day experiences of members.

The oral history has been created from people's experiences of their careers in journalism and within the Union. Work on recording and uploading continues.

Graduands from various universities across the country have been conducting interviews with key members from the NUJ in order to capture its 100-year past. The interviews are uploaded onto this website in their full format and are accessible by all.
