Songs From Hattersley: Residents sing of life on council estate

Life on a council estate in Greater Manchester is the focus of a new musical film being shown on BBC One in the North West.

Songs From Hattersley tells the story of the overspill town built in the 1960s by Manchester City Council.

Six residents worked with composer Benjamin Till and professional musicians to create five songs about their experiences and memories of living there.

Songs From Hattersley is on North West Tonight, BBC One 18:30 BST from Monday 26 to Friday 30 March.
