Miracle urban renewal and redevelopment in Victorian Newtown, Exeter.
Instructional film/TV programme 1970 20 mins
This jovial government instructional film takes a look at some of the ground-breaking council initiatives for urban renewal and regeneration in the Newtown district of Exeter - an area riddled with run-down Victorian terraces and poor amenities. Arguing against inflicting wholesale redevelopment, this film is a manifesto for community-orientated upgrades to housing, services and transport.
The film was made for the Ministry of Housing and Local Government (via the Central Office of Information) by World Wide Pictures - a production outfit whose origins stem from the early days of the British documentary movement.
