How it works
Lives on Record is simple to arrange, enjoyable to prepare for and loads of fun to do.
Choose an occasion
Have a look at our occasions page and choose which story you'd like to tell. Often people give Lives on Record as a gift - to a child, parent, colleague or friend.
Answer a few questions
We'll get to work researching our subject - with your help. To make it really easy we've created a form that can be filled in by the interviewee and those who know them, giving us all the background information.
We come and interview you
We'll arrange to do the one-on-one interview at a place and time that's convenient for you. For most people that's at home, but you're welcome to come to our London HQ if you'd prefer.
We edit the interview
Our team of audio editors cut out the ums, ahh's and bits that don't quite work and add in snippets of your favourite music if it's appropriate. The end result is a 60-80 minute broadcast-quality recording.
Listen to your story
Four to six weeks after the interview you'll receive your Lives On Record in a beautiful presentation pack. It includes a high quality CD recording and log in details to your online members' page.
Share your story
If you like, you can share your log in details with friends and family. They can listen to your full Lives On Record recording on your personal Members' page. Additional copies of the full presentation pack can be ordered too. Like the idea of reading the interview off a page? We can transcribe the interview too, delivered to you bound in a beautiful Lives On Record folder.
