Poverty and Participation in the Media - Discussion of the BBC's The Tower - 2009


In June 2007 the BBC screened an 8-part documentary series looking at the effects of the sale of Aragon Tower, on the Pepys council estate in Lewisham, to private developers.

The interviewees here are all local residents, including two who featured in the programme. They look at the film in terms of their community and how it was portrayed, the repercussions of the film and what they feel should have been done differently. All footage produced as part of Spectacle workshops on the Pepys estate.

These clips are a preview of Spectacle's Poverty and Participation in the Media project, due for DVD release in May.

Interviews were produced within Poverty and Participation in the Media Workshops. All interviews and production was conducted by participants. To view some of our online discussions on Poverty and Pariticipation in the Media please visit our blog.
