Storyline

Melvyn visits Park Hill in Sheffield to look back to the 1960s and a time when high-rise housing promised a better way of living. Architect and historian Charlie Luxton explains how urban planners tackled the housing problem they faced after WWII. Anne Kimuyu shares her own experiences of high-rise living in Nottingham's Hyson Green estate, as the flats failed to fulfil their promise of a better way of living. And former Park Hill resident Charlie Lindley comes face to face with his family when they were filmed by the BBC in 1966 soon after moving into their new flat. Written by Anonymous
