Lucinda Lambton reports on the struggle of the Twentieth Century Society to preserve examples of twentieth century architecture which are now in danger of demolition.

She begins her investigation in Birmingham, where the city council wants to pull down the Central Library, and also looks at the Society's attempts to save a gasometer in Edinburgh, a block of council flats in London and the Civic Centre in Plymouth.
