3: Glasgow-The Second Sack
A discussion with REYNER BANHAM
Glasgow has been called 'the astonishing city ' because of the unique character given it by its dominant pattern of terraces and tenements superimposed on a topography of ridges and burns. But Glasgow's civic problems are worse than astonishing: in this progiamme representative citizens discuss with Reyner Banham the ate and future of Glasgow's urban character, as the Corporation prepares to demolish, for comprehensive redevelopment, far more of the city than was laid waste by the sack of 1544.

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.
