Manchester then and now; how has Manchester changed over the twentieth century, and what has remained the same?

Using rare film from the North West Film Archive, Steve Hawley, filmmaker and Emeritus Professor at the Manchester School of Art, will tell the story of the changing face and fortunes of the city through its streets and its people and rituals. From the first films of Manchester, including Our Friends the Police 1914, an early example of a PR film shot on the streets around Piccadilly, through to the destruction of the war, to Manchester servicemen in the the Far East sending filmed messages home in 1944, the first films in which Northern men speak in their own regional accents.

Scenes from A City Speaks, 1947’s idealistic vision of postwar Manchester, give way to the fifties and sixties, showing the way that central Manchester has changed; Piccadilly Gardens in colour, the parades and football triumphs, the markets and the Salford Docks. The narrative also takes in students in Manchester over the years, from rag weeks to students riots on Oxford Street. This quirky, funny and moving story is brought to life by vivid and compelling moving images – see the streets of the city as they are now, and as they were, 40, 70, 100 years ago.
