The Sound of Music is firmly embedded in the DNA of a generation. But what was it like to be part of all this?
For seven children and young adults, the summer of 1964 was a magical one, spent in Salzburg, Austria, filming. The Sound of Music Family Scrapbook tells their story - both during the filming and once the movie was released. It features hundreds of photographs and memorabilia they have cherished and preserved over the years, including letters home - even a ticket to the world première.
If you ever dreamed of marching round the fountains singing "Do Re Mi", or dressing in a playsuit made from drapes, you will love this enchanting story of how seven boys and girls became a family - and how they kept that closeness for over 50 years.
