Welcome to Moonraker's Tales: Wiltshire's Stories


A podcast by Wiltshire Museum's Youth Panel


"A severed hand, a tiger attack, and a man so tall he could light a cigarette using only a street lamp..."

Did you know Wiltshire's history is filled with tales of odd goings on? Now you can hear about them all in one place!

Our Museum Youth Panel have uncovered a treasure trove of weird and wacky stories from Wiltshire's past. So many, in fact, that they've created a brand new podcast to share them.

Over 5 episodes, they delve into stories across the county - including conspiracies, ghosts, and some real life stories that are just...weird!

The episodes are bitesize, perfect for listening on the go. Please do give it a listen and let us know what you think.


Putting together the podcast

Over a 6 month period, the group researched, script-wrote, recorded, edited and marketed the podcast together.

A big thank you to Amy, Bethany, Olly, Ruby and Tom for working so hard to create it. They've persevered through multiple lockdowns, bad internet, and storms - not to mention juggling around driving lessons, work, and exam revision!
