Memory Lane: Philip Shakesheff

A rather special Memory Lane as one of our video team sat down with his grandad and Nottingham alumnus Philip Shakesheff (Industrial Economics, 1969).

Philip recalls what life was like on campus over 50 years ago; sharing his memories of his time in halls, his 'tutorials', 'Rag Week' activities (including building the floats which were driven into Nottingham city centre) and the perambulator race around University Park!

He also shares what is was like watching the first moon landing in a packed Portland Building back in 1969.
