Do you remember Pestalozzi? Don’t forget – if you live in the south-east of the UK – that on Monday evening 4th February on BBC One TV from 7:30pm (UK time) is “Inside Out – south-east”.
It will include a ten-minute feature about the Pestalozzi Village in Sedlescombe by presenter Ellie Crisell. Ellie interviews final year students, along with four of the original European children – William, Sonja, Yogi and Leonard (all just a little older now!). Also, there will be a look back at the Panorama program from 1960 when Richard Dimbleby visited Pestalozzi at Christmas-time.
Importantly, this will be a nostalgic review before the community closes its doors at the Oaklands estate later this year (Plans are in place for the Pestalozzi Internatinional Village Trust to continue its operations in a revised format).
Once the program has been broadcast, it will be available online for 30 days. We will include a weblink to the BBC page here.
