It was once an industrial wasteland, now it’s Eastlands.

Where there were coalpits, locomotive works, chemical plants and cotton workshops are now sports stadia – Manchester City, the Velodrome (where we hope to witness the cycling training) – a cleaned-up canal, a new Metrolink line and millions of pounds of investment.

We will unravel how the beating heart of industrial Manchester became the soul of the new 21st century city.
