A film about the biggest domestic upheaval of the century, and the conflict between people and local authorities, resulting from the corporation rehousing programmes which are changing almost every city in Britain.
A Council Tenant: "They don't look up to you like they did in the old areas. They're the officials and they let you know they're the officials."
A Council Official: "They weren't like this when they lived in the streets. God love us, when they want their shoelaces tying they want one of us to go round and tie them for them."
