Closure


This year marks the 50th anniversary of the closure of the border with Spain. GBC has been researching this episode in the Rock’s history, and has gathered a number of voices from both sides of the border to retell how they lived the restrictions put in place in the years leading up to the closure, and how life changed forever once the gates were slammed shut. ‘Closure’ is a one hour documentary filmed against the backdrop of the exhibition organised by the Gibraltar Archives commemorating the anniversary. It also features original footage from the recently digitised GBC Archive, some of which has not been shown on TV since its original broadcast in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
