How many people remember the momentous events of 1989? The revolutions across Eastern Europe, the sense of impending change, the excitement of “people power”?
Chances are, if you’re in your 20s or younger, you’ll have heard that Europe used to be divided by the Berlin Wall, but you didn’t live through those years.
You probably didn’t directly experience the profound changes that swept not just across Europe, but were felt in Africa, Vietnam, Cuba, South America and China.
As part of a season of programmes looking back at 1989, the BBC World Service would like you to get involved in a series of cross-generational interviews – where people in their 20s find out how the world changed from those who were in the thick of change in 1989.
You may want to interview your parents, teachers, friends or relatives. Or if you lived through the events of 1989 – and your life was profoundly changed – we’d love to hear from you.
World Have Your Say will be there too. Here’s where to go for more details.
