Archive footage rights are with North West Film Archive at Manchester Metropolitan University, Vicky Eachus and Sir John Deane's College.

The documentary was produced and edited by Katayoun Dowlatshahi, Lead Artist for Northwich, as part of the COLLECT: Memorial Capture Project, set up to document and collect memories associated with the Memorial Hall in Northwich prior to its demolition in 2013. It is the first of several regeneration initiatives in Northwich. Four archived films were found in the North West Film Archive and their re-emergence now resonates with the regeneration of Northwich town centre as three of the four films echo a similar theme of regeneration; they date from 1938.

The narrative was researched and narrated by Brett Langston, Research Consultant at Cheshire Archives and Local Studies Section of the Record Office in Chester. The duration of the film is one hour.
