Rover City. The name of Cowley in Oxford has been linked with the British car industry for most of this century. Oxford car workers have produced some of the most famous names in British cars - from the first bullnose
Morris to the Montego. At one time, 26,000 people worked in the plant, but this summer -
; when Rover is due to close the South Works - only 5,000 : people will remain.
! In a city dominated by the dreaming spires of the university, the prospects for those who work on the assembly lines seem bleak. As one local councillor comments, "Unless we put those jobs back, Oxford will be a nice place to visit, a nice place to look round the colleges, but an empty shell for anybody who is not in academia or who is not a tourist."
In her film Ann Schofield , a member of the Oxford Motor
Industry Research Project, explores the impact of the industry's decline on a community which has spent its life making cars.
