A portrait to mark the centenary of L.S. Lowry's birth. Painter of life in the bustling streets and dingy cotton mills of Salford, Lowry had a reputation for creating matchstick characters. Was it that he couldn't draw? Or was he, through his own vision, giving us a true picture of the industrial scene?
Mervyn Levy talks to some of the people who knew Lowry and his world: The Rev Geoffrey Bennett, the late Lord Rhodes of Saddleworth, Joseph Fitton, Ruskin Spear, Professor Carel Weight, Alick Leggatt and members of the Solomon Family.
With the recorded voice of L.S. Lowry himself.
