Bradford: The Way We Were (Part 1)
  (Enlarge)  
Explore Bradford's extraordinary growth from a country market town to a thriving industrial city known as ?the dirtiest town in the north! Witness its shocking Victorian slums, the coming of the Leeds and Bradford railway, the changing face of Forster Square and Kirkgate, memories of the heroic sacrifice of the Bradford Pals in the Great War - plus much more. Text from producer: A new DVD takes a fascinating look back at life in bygone Bradford. It explores Bradford?s extraordinary growth from a country market town to a thriving industrial city; provides a shocking insight into life in Bradford's Victorian slums; recalls the excitement that greeted the opening of the Leeds and Bradford railway; reveals the changing face of Forster Square and Kirkgate; remembers the heroic sacrifice of the Bradford Pals in the Great War; and recounts tales of evacuees in World War 2. The DVD also uncovers many aspects of Bradford?s hidden past. We discover why Bradford came to be known as ?the Venice of the north?, and at the same time gained a reputation as the dirtiest town in England; learn of the violent events that followed an industrial dispute; hear what happened when the fair came to town; and find out why the sinking of the Lusitania was a disaster for Little Germany. Included with ?Bradford The Way We Were? is a bonus film, ?The Way We Were in the 1950's?.
