Sir John Betjeman in Leeds


The BBC programme Inside Out has uncovered a film made with poet Sir John Betjeman in 1968, looking at the changing face of Leeds brought about by the slum clearances of the time.

Betjeman explored the city's Victorian heritage and lamented the destruction of the city's past in favour of new tower blocks.

Inside Out Yorkshire and Lincolnshire will be shown on 18 February at 1930 GMT.

The sound on this clip cuts out after 25 seconds.
