In 2011 the Kents Hill Junior School Radio Club created a documentary about the 1953 Canvey Island floods. This documentary went on to win the 2012 Sony Award for Feature/Documentary Programming.
The Radio Club meets once a week at lunchtime and is organised by parent volunteer Michelle Durant. She helped the children produce the documentary and secured air time for it on local community radio station Gateway 97.8 where she is also a volunteer.
The original documentary is 55 minutes long. The whole documentary is on the site but split into four logical sections to enable people to listen to parts of it when it suits them.
Our thanks to Michelle Durant for providing us with a copy of the documentary.
