A poem by Sam Illingworth about the turbulent history of the Manchester Ship Canal. Narrated by Sam, James Redfern and Natasha Hall-McKenna, with audio recording help from Neil Cochrane.
Created in collaboration with Manchester Metropolitan University, BBC R&D (who supplied the source footage that was re-conceived for this piece) and the Canal & Rivers Trust as part of the Beacons for Science Project with Salford University. You can also experience an immersive 360 degree version of this work by downloading the Beacons for Science app, which is launched in a few weeks time. Thanks also to Keith Myers for his support in developing this project.
