Houses Fit for People

First transmitted in 1986, Houses Fit for People looks at housing and where the modern movement went wrong with their high-rises and modern concrete estates. It identifies an increasing demand for a humane approach to the places people live in, and seeks out examples in the work of some innovative European architects.
