On April 7th 2000 Nelson Mandela came to Bedford to rededicate the bust of his friend and mentor Trevor Huddleston who was born in Bedford in 1913. The visit lasted less than an hour but it made a lasting impression on everyone who was there. Invisible Folk tracked down some of those people and asked them for their memories, we collected them together to create this podcast. As well as talking to people who were on the streets of Bedford that day we also hear the story of how the visit actually came about.

During research we located a YouTube film with 10 minutes of television hightlights sourced from both ITV (Anglia) and BBC (East of England). Can you spot your younger self?
