Just finished watching it , I thought it was a balanced account of actual events from the 1970's to the present day. From a football point of view Everton got a decent amount of attention.
From a political viewpoint ,I'm of an age when I can well remember the militant movement ,personified by Hatton & co. and his ultimate putdown by Kinnock.
The Thatcher goverment were prepared to let Liverpool lapse into managed decline but ,against advice ,she appointed Heseltine to try to regenerate the city. I wouldn't normally stick up for a Tory grandee but I happen to be acquainted with one of Heseltine's aides at the time. Heseltine was determined to ,at least ,try to kick start a revival.
I'm not a scouser but I have spent countless hours exploring and researching Merseyside .In about 1975 my wife and I stayed at the old Holiday Inn in Paradise St. It was dirt cheap to stay the weekend in Liverpool then ,just the opposite now. The view from our window was the derelict Albert Dock as shown in Boys from the Black Stuff. Ten years later saw the first shoots of recovery and and now Liverpool is a vibrant ,attractive destination..
As an Evertonian I feel a great affinity to the city and I spend as much time as possible here . The people are great and the ale and scran is cheaper than most parts of the country..
