I have just watched the documentary, how did the north east of england fare??? My parents would have been teenagers in 63, but tbh I don't remember either of them mentioning it? I was born in 81 and the stories of only a coal fire in one room to keep you warm and thick ice inside the windows was my reality until my teens. I remember lots of snow in my childhood, but nothing major like described in the documentary. I grew up in Middlesbrough and I reckon my parents certainly would hve mentioned it if it was very extreme.
