  2. Producer: Films of Fact Ltd / Paul Rotha for Manchester City Council
    Taken from a promotional film made for Manchester Corporation about local government and plans for the redevelopment of Manchester in the post-war era.
    In the full 64-minute film, an introductory sequence shows the commerce and industry of the city and is followed by an historical account of its development from Roman times through the Industrial Revolution, social reform and public services. The electoral system is explained; the workings of various departments, eg libraries, housing etc, and utilities; the provision of health care; the relationship between health and housing, and the extensive plans for the development of Hulme along the lines of Wythenshawe which is shown as ideal. The leisure activities of the city are illustrated before a concluding sequence contrasting past and present.
