The Ladies’ Bridge (2016) Karen Livesey 
LB

Today the Thames riverboat pilots tell the story of Waterloo Bridge being built by women during the Second World War. Official history had written this story out as Historian Dr Christine Wall discovered after years of trawling through archives.

In 2005 she was joined by film-maker Karen Livesey to pursue the story through oral history. We set out to find these women, The Ladies Bridge documentary explores why these bridge builders and 25,000 other female construction workers had been written out of history. It was not until 2015, with the find of threee photographs and a crucial interview from the documentary, that womens’ contribution to the building of the bridge was officially acknowledged.
Producers :  Jo Wiser & Karen Livesey
