On Tuesday 16th February, BBC London 94.9's Robert Elms will be broadcasting his show live from the foyer at the Horniman Museum between midday and three o'clock.

He's inviting anyone with an object/artefact etc that they feel is part of London's history to bring it along to be discussed on the show and to be added to a web site as part of the BBC's 'A History of the World' project.

You can though bring in your item along any time during the day from 10.30am.

These objects could also be added to a collection already chosen by four of London's top museums as the best examples of London's history in object form.

For more info go to http://news.bbc.co.uk/local/london/hi/ and click on 'History'

The show also needs the help of the Forest Hill Society in the form of a local historian and/or anyone with the story of the Pools saga. Interested? Then contact the show's producer Sarah Bateson soonest at sarah.bateson@bbc.co.uk

Thanks for alerting me, Michael. It sounds very interesting.

I suppose I take "the form of a local historian" so I will contact Sarah Bateson. I also have one or two local objects that may be of interest that I can bring along.

Hi there

The BBC are still trying to contact Steve - so if anyone could let him know - Sarah (the producer) hasn't got mobile coverage most of the day so the best contact is her e-mail sarah.bateson@bbc.co.uk

I'll also pm him

Thanks

It's OK, Jane, I spoke to Sarah about half an hour ago. Apparently her programme was about to go on air so she will call me later today to talk more fully.
