Metro Man: An Inside Out Special

Twenty-five years ago one man changed the face of UK shopping. Sir John Hall reveals how a trip to Canada provided the inspiration for the retail revolution that began on Tyneside. Using his personal archive, Sir John relives the early days of the plan which many thought was doomed to failure and explains why not all of his vision has survived to this day.
