Michelle Owen explains how the image of ferrets has dramatically changed over the past 20 years.

This recording is part of Multistory's Black Country Stories programme. Oral historian, Julia Letts, has been working with local volunteers in the Black Country since 2010 recording and sharing the wonderful of stories of Black Country people to compliment the photographs by Martin Parr. The oral history team have recorded stories in gyms, factories, people's homes and many other locations.

'The photos told some wonderful stories and gave me a glimpse of the working and personal lives of ordinary Black Country people. My job was to record some of the voices behind the photos. This has meant travelling around to many homes and work places and recording oral history interviews with some of the people Martin photographed. It has been a privilege.' Julia Letts.
