Landmarks - Portrait of Britain (Geography)
Landmarks, a long running educational series covering history and geography, was made for BBC Schools.
This particular group of programmes looks at how people live in different parts of the country.
2: Stoke-on-Trent - An Industrial City
A quarter of a million people live in Stoke and some parts of the city look little different from how
they did a hundred years ago.
Stoke is famous for it's pottery, but few of the many bottle shaped kilns still exist.
In the sixties a big clean up occurred and a lot of the old industries were turned into open parkland,
and railway tracks turned into cycle tracks and walkways.
This programme shows some great 'before and after' footage of the city.
