Ours to Keep - Incomers

First transmitted in 1985, this film looks at the decaying Georgian houses of London's Spitalfields and the work of local enthusiasts who are carrying out restoration work.

First transmitted in 1985, Incomers looks at the splendid yet decaying Georgian houses of Spitalfields in London's East End. Dan Cruickshank and local enthusiasts ranging from artists, historians and architects, are committed to restoring these properties back to their former glory. The programme charts the restoration process as the buildings undergo a rapid transformation and once again become desirable London dwellings. But in doing so they have to resist the ambitions of property developers, thwart contracted demolition teams, recognise the housing needs of the local Bengali community and help relocate the local businesses that occupied workshops within some of the prized houses.
