Glasgow's Turnaround

Abstract : It studies the history of Glasgow's planning strategies following on from the city's industrial heyday of shipbuilding in the 1930s, its industrial decline, population shrinkage (some of which was actively encouraged by city and governmental policies), to today's current regeneration strategies and their outcomes. In the documentary local practitioners, politicians and academics discuss critically the different strategies put in place to reverse the decline. The strategies presented include economics and housing, culture, education, and migration. Local governance and public spending play a key role. The documentary concludes with the city's relative and fragile success (the fragility is underlined by the current economic crises) at the cost of social and physical polarisation.
