In The Tracks of Memory is a collaboration between composers Klive and Nigel Humberstone (In The Nursery), academics Brendan Stone and David Forrest (Storying Sheffield) and filmmaker Alex Keegan.
Using footage from a collection of Sheffield transport films, interspersed with memories and anecdotes from Sheffield residents, the film paints a vivid picture of the city, from the Edwardian period, through the 50s and 60s to the present.
Klive and Nigel Humberstone (In The Nursery) are Sheffield-based musicians and composers with a specialism in cinematic works and soundtracks. Their scores for classic silent films are performed around the world.

David Forrest is a lecturer in film studies at the University of Sheffield. He has published work on the British New Wave and British television drama. His latest book is Social Realism: Art, Nationhood and Politics.
