Plum pictures are developing a new series, exploring individual stories of British heroism, adventure, survival, exploration and ingenuity.

Importantly, can you think of an object at the centre of this story? The object itself could be anything! It could be an improvised boat used in an escape attempt or a beloved vehicle that took your ancestor on an adventure. It might only exist as a sketch in your Granddad’s war diary or the dreams of two lovers hidden in their letters or memoirs…dreams that were never realised.

In the new series they hope to retell their story by recreating, renovating or building that object from scratch.

Whatever the story, they may be able to help! Please email your stories to:
