Geographical Eye over Britain - The Waxing and Waning of the Textile Industry (in Yorkshire)
The town of Halifax grew rich on the Textile Industry.
Everywhere there are Textile Mills, but most of the old mills aren't making cloth anymore.
All over the region there are buildings that tell the story of the textile Industry.
This programme tells the story from when it first began, high up in the hills.
A four-part series emphasising the inter-relationship between human and physical geography,
in areas ranging from the woollen industry and the distinctive landscape it has created in West Yorkshire,
to an inner-city riverside community in London. The individual programmes are:
The Waxing and Waning of the Textile Industry: Yorkshire; (this one)
Shifting Coastlines: East Coast;
The Changing City: London;
The Changing Village: East Anglia.
