Wow some really great finds there fella, keept me busy for the last hour or so watching em lol!!

The unmeployment video is great, on YouTube is says basically that apparently the street was demolished probably because of the bad publicity generated by the documentary. But the problems didnt end, they were just moved to another street, albeit in the same area.

Lol, i`m working security in a garage at the mo, this has kept me entertained, heres another unemployment video with more shots of birkenhead, this one is a better one than the last.
Once again, thanks to soundlad of youtube.... happy

This is a Program from Granada back in the 80's.(world in action) This program is about Unemployment back in the 80's its focused on Birkenhead my home town as Unemployment was quite bad back then.. Some people on the video might be known to locals of birkenhead and some people might appriciate the Back in the day.
