Between 2007 and 2009, Rob Light, Project Manager of the 'Up and Under' Oral History Project at the University of Huddersfield created around 100 oral history recordings.
Those interviewed include John Atkinson; Maurice Bamford; David Barends; Doris Beard; John Beaumont; Keith Bell; Jackie Blackburn; Eddie Bottomley; Alan Bradford; Keith Bridges; Keith Burhouse; Alf Burnell; Ikram Butt; Graham Chalkley; Andy Coldrick; Phil Crabtree; Ken Dean; Bak Diabira; Malcolm Dixon; John Downes; Albert Eyre; Peter Fox; Carl Gibson; David Gronow; Geoff Gunney; Cora Haley; Len Haley; Derek Hallas; Fred Halliday; Karl Harrison; Chris Hawksworth; John Henderson; David Hinchliffe; Phil Hodgson; Donald Hunt; Eddie Illingworth; David Ingham; Roger Ingham; Harry Jepson; Gill and Richard Johnson; Paul Kilbride; John Kitson; Linda Kitson; Bryn Knowelden; Jack Merewood; Mick Morgan; Sam Morton; Garfield Owen; Stanley Pickles; Sid Rookes; Ken Senior; John Sheridan;. Bernard Shooman; Neil Shuttleworth; Tommy Smales; Brian Smith; Geoff Smith; Francis Stephenson; Mick Sullivan; Billy Thompson; Stan Timmins; Frank Wagstaff; Joe Warham; Trevor Ward; Harry Waring; Frank Watson; Ronnie Wolfenden. Dave Woods; Geoff Wright.
The interviews take the form of life stories which reflect the ways in which Rugby League has interacted with broader events in West Yorkshire. Almost every session began with an account of the interviewees first memories of rugby league. All but one interviewees had a strong connection with West Yorkshire. The one exception was Bryn Knowelden , who was one of the last surviving 1946 British Lions 'Indomitables' tourists.
Besides digital recordings there is one box of paperwork generated by the project. This includes correspondence and completed interviewee waiver forms.
