Mon 1 Jan 0001 - Sun 23 Sep 2018, Dawley Town Hall
Two engaging archive films have been dug out of dusty cupboards to give a glimpse into Telford’s past for this unique screening at Dawley Town Hall.
The first is a 1968 BBC documentary called A Splendid Place To Live, which follows the Hirst family as they move from a Birmingham council estate to a maisonette in Sutton Hill, giving viewers a peek behind the scenes at fraught planning meetings as officials try to strike the right balance between new jobs and new houses.
That’s followed by The New Life, a 1971 sales pitch commissioned by Telford Development Corporation to lure new residents to the still nascent town.
The two films form a detailed picture of Telford’s past, fifty years on from its official birth.
