A clip from one of the programmes in the multi-award winning series, The Secret History of Our Streets. The programme I made in this series is about a London street called Arnold Circus, which was the first council estate in Britain. The story of Arnold Circus reveals how streets and cities never come out as they are planned. This clip introduces Minnie Finkelstein, the granddaughter of one of the first families to move into Arnold Circus. The Finkelstein’s former council flat, where Minnie grew-up, is now owned by a wealthy young banker. I filmed Minnie returning to her old flat which she hadn’t seen for fifty years.
