    Hi all,



    Looking for the following - sorry for such a sketchy detail level..



    A few months ago BBC broadcast a documentary filmed in Sheffield, possibly late 1960s or early 1970s. It was a sort of day in the life of Sheffield



    Memorable bits:



    Inside Sheffield Corporation abattoir Cricket Inn Road

    Baby being born at Jessops

    Lorry crashed into a house

    A guy being presented with his "clock" at his leaving do after XX years in the steel works

    Think an elderly person died, but that may be my memory playing tricks again.



    It was professionally filmed etc, but not as slick as City on the move.



    Child birth and abattoir scenes left nothing to the imagination!



    It was in B/W

    Hi,

    I think this was entitled "A Day in the City" or something like that. I recorded it onto DVD-R but have not yet got around to watching it. I will check it out and let you know (although I am sure it was made in colour as I did watch the beginning).

    Thanks

    I've checked my recording and the title is "ALL IN A DAY - THE CITY".

    I just lost this classic piece of footage when my Sky+ drive went down.



    Would anyone be able to loan a DVD of this gem? It would be much appreciated.



    Cheers,



    James
