This fascinating 1964 documentry on iplayer and chosen by Simon Jenkins is incredible in its damning about the inter-war tube inspired suburban sprawl and the New Towns. The programme confidently predicts the necessity to regenerate the centre for denser living. Interestingly it mis-judges the practicality of the streets in the sky concept which I assume was just around the corner at this time and equally bizarrely seems to accept unconditional traffic growth without question.

A City Crowned with Green

First transmitted in 1964, this film charts how London has grown in size and spread into the surrounding country. Written and narrated by architectural critic Reyner Banham, A City Crowned with Green describes the unique character of London as a capital city. Banham looks at how it has, from the time of Elizabeth I, defied the efforts of the planners to curb its growth but he is alarmed by the urban sprawl. Is to too late to get back closer to the heart and make London a city crowned with green?
