Stop the Bulldozer

Duration: 40 minutes

First transmitted in 1986, Stop the Bulldozer looks at the conflict between conservationists and those who feel that conservation at all costs is inhibiting contemporary architecture.

This programme examines the reconstruction of the historic centre of Frankfurt and the revitalised shopping malls of America, amongst others; whilst Terry Farrell discusses his design of the TV-am building.
