Liverpool: Sinner and Saint

BBC Radio 4’s Archive Hour on Saturday 30th presented a programme on Liverpool’s turbulent social and cultural history throughout the twentieth century, Liverpool: Sinner and Saint. Throughout the programme archived sources including folk songs written and performed by Liverpudlians about the Toxteth riots of the early eighties can be heard alongside people’s memories and feelings about being moved from the inner city to the outer lying estates such as Huyton. The current debate around culture and its uses and how Liverpool has tried to ensure Liverpool 08’s success will continue to deliver cultural engagement after the affair are discussed throughout. The programme will be available to listen to again on the BBC Radio 4 website at the above link for another couple of days.
