Remembering life in Glasgow's Red Road estate


As the first of the Red Road tower blocks in Glasgow is demolished, BBC Newsnight's Catrin Nye has been looking at the life of these epic structures and has met some of those who have lived there over the years.

She speaks to former residents Azam Khan and Peter McDonald, who lived in Red Road in the late 1980s and early 1990s. They describe their reaction on seeing the estate for the first time, remembering it looking like a "huge monster".

Watch Catrin Nye's full report on BBC Newsnight on Monday 11 June at 22:35 BST on BBC Two.
