video still: second listening

A video of my mother listening to the sound piece Bellevue, which includes recordings of her telling stories of nights out in Manchester as a teenager and a covert recording of her getting ready to go out, some sixty years later at the age of eighty.
My mother does not remember making the recording and although she recognises the stories being told, she does not recognise the voice telling them.
As she listens my mother occasionally speaks aloud, confirming elements of the stories and adding to them.  
This 'conversation' was recorded on mini-disc and subsequently used in an updated version of Bellevue: Bellevue revisited.
