The Manufactured Landscape was a series made by HTV and shown on ITV Schools.
It looks at how Britain became the first country to industrialise and during the nineteenth century become
the most powerful nation in the world and the workshop of the world.
The series looks at the development of canals and roads, railways, the origins of steam and the growth of towns.
5: The Growth of Towns
Of all the changes brought about by the Industrial Revolution, by far the greatest was in the way of life in
the homes and in the habits of the British people.
This final programme looks at the evidence that tells us about the growth of towns - Urbanisation.
The demand for housing close to the factories brought terrible overcrowding.
Sometimes people could only afford to rent part of a bed, let alone a room.
In one survey in London, half of the people only had one bed for the whole family.
