Edge of the City

NOMINATED TO BAFTA BY CHANNEL 4

1 x 90 Controversial observational documentary originally withdrawn from the schedules by Channel 4. This ‘unprecedented’ decision followed a warning from the Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police that the timing of the programme would increase community tensions and provoke public disorder in Bradford. Edge of the City provides a powerful snapshot of the darker side of urban life in Britain. Following Bradford Social Services, the programme meets people who have a great – and often costly – dependency on the state, and the social workers who pick up the pieces.
