Description

The giant concrete estate of Park Hill in Sheffield started life as a bustling new home for council tenants in the 1960s. The BBC filmed a landmark documentary there in 1965, interviewing the families who had moved out of slum housing to live in the "streets in the sky". But Park Hill soon took a turn for the worse - it became notorious for its crime and drug problems. The Brutalist building was eventually condemned as a concrete eyesore.Now, 55 years since it was built, Park Hill is flourishing again. But who lives there now and how much has the place changed?Video Journalist: Dan GordonProducers: Camila Ruz & Susannah StevensResearcher: Cebo LuthuliPlease subscribe HERE Islamic State's 'Most Wanted' World In Pictures Big Hitters Just Good News
