    Default How We Built Britain - Liverpool

    Liverpool is a World Heritage Site. The city continues its battle between old and new, traditional and modern. This film explores plans for a Fourth Grace.

    Liverpool is a World Heritage Site - something the people of Liverpool are very proud of. A city of cultural icons there is now a battle between the diverse styles - old and the new, traditional and modern.

    This film on the Fourth Grace is presented by Lloyd Grossman, Liverpool's adopted son. Lloyd was influential in promoting the city to win the European Capital of Culture bid . He is, and has, been involved with numerous cultural boards there. He is passionate about Liverpool and is a highly regarded familiar figure on Merseyside as well as on TV.

    You can see the full programme on BBC One at 10.35pm on Monday, 18 June, 2007.

    Cool LLOYD grossman

    I thought that it was rubbish, in fact a typical bbc nothing said programme.

    Lots of missed opportunities of great photos like the met cathedral entrance.
    There was nothing positive that came out of that that the rest of the country would say, "yes, I,d like to go and see that" except the short quip about the met cathedral. and the show was about the flippin, shops. "Is Liverpool ready for this," It won,t be with shows like this

    Unfortunately, I never could stand listening to Loyd Grossman's accent, but quite enjoyed the programme.
    Doesn't everybody know the Mersey Tunnel opened in 1934, not 1933!

    I know yeah, 1933 was famous of course for Dixie Dean's Everton winning the F.A. Cup 3 - 0 against Man city at Wembley, the first time numbers were worn on the back - EFC were 1-11 making Dixie also Englands first No.9, City wore 12-22. They then paraded around the city on a horse drawn carriage with the cup to hundreds of thousands at St. George's plateau.

    Liverpool in the foreign media thread has a good write up about us in Oz.

    Thanks Phil, I always thought it opened in 1933 with the official opening in 1934. It is a popular misconception with even songs using the 1933 date. Example;
    'We dug the Mersey Tunnel boys
    Way back in thirty three
    Dug an 'ole in the ground
    Until we found
    An 'ole called Wallasey' etc.
