18th October - A City Speaks, 1947
The screening will be introduced by MMU Professor Alan Kidd, an expert on regional history and author of Manchester: A History. A City Speaks was commissioned by Manchester City Council in 1944 as both a response to the Manchester Blitz and subsequent plans for post-war restoration, and to encourage civic awareness and pride. In 1945, the city published a detailed plan for reconstruction including housing, transport and urban zoning.
