Archive: Progress in Craigavon 1970

Don Anderson interviews Edward Cage about the progress of Craigavon, the lack of housing and facilities, and the lack of a pub.

Craigavon was created in County Armagh in the 1960s to encourage people to relocate to the new town from Belfast. It was intended to realise all the aspirations of Modernist architecture and town planning but became known as a "soulless" urban space notorious for its many roundabouts.

First broadcast on Scene Around Six on 4 March 1970
