If anyone is going to talk to Dennis Brock - or anyone else which 
archive-worthy recollections - it's worth trying to follow the guidlines 
suggested by the Oral History Society - see 

I've done quite a bit of this (although only a couple of interviews with 
ringers, I'm sorry to say) and I'll be happy to offer some general 
guidance.  But most people I've spoken to about oral history find the 
Oral History Society (and British Library) guidelines very useful and 
practical. It doesn't have to be done strictly to the book or made 
unduly complicated - but the basic principles are well worth adhering to.
