Getting into GEAR
In 1941 Glasgow was the second city of the Empire. But by 1971 the census revealed the city's East End as one of the most deprived urban areas in Europe. The heavy industry on which it had thrived was dead or dying, and workers were leaving a derelict landscape in their thousands. The response, in 1976, was the Glasgow Eastern Area Renewal (GEAR) project and, to date, more than 400 million pounds has been spent in revitalising the East End.
As this unique effort comes to a close Margo MacDonald examines the results.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
