The fourth of five programmes visiting great houses. Le Corbusier was convinced that architecture could bring about social reform. His experiment in vertical community living - the Marseille Unite d'Habitation - may be a concrete tower block, but it bears little resemblance to the public housing it inspired all over the world and which has been almost universally condemned in Britain. Susan Marling visits this revolutionary block, which is still loved by its residents.
