living in the block as the demolition starts around them.

Jacqui lives with her daughters and baby grand daughter. Her video diary
hilariously and shockingly charts the appalling renovations made to her flat as corners are cut, and shoddy workmanship invades her flat.

Let it Rain
The SVG have filmed a huge archive of the changes on the estate over the
years with a large body of interviews of residents and professionals involved in the regeneration of the area. This archive is a unique record of this process that is happening all over the country and includes regen meetings, tenants meetings and public events. Much of this footage has been used in various edits to be shown at public meetings, and will prove a valuable record of what regeneration means from the perspective of the people who experience it.
