Jack Dunnett became the Labour MP for Nottingham Central at the 1964 General Election. This ATV Today profile finds him in 1971 talking to Reg Harcourt about his love of Notts County football club and walking the newly laid streets of St Ann's meeting people who have recently moved into the redevelopment area. They'd said goodbye to outside toilets, damp and decay - their new area never looked better.

Notts County were division four champions in 1971. Jack Dunnett served as Nottingham Central and later Nottingham East MP until standing down in 1983.
