Click here to listen to a discussion of The Gangs of Manchester on “Thinking Allowed” on BBC Radio 4, hosted by Laurie Taylor. Andrew Davies is joined by Geoffrey Pearson, author of Hooligan: a history of respectable fears, and Tara Young, who is conducting research into the lives of young people in present-day London.

A feature on scuttling on BBC Television’s “Inside Out” can be viewed on youtube here and here. Cheers to the anonymous uploader, and to Karen for tipping me off about this. The programme incorporates scenes from Paul Cliff’s films for Angels with Manky Faces: special thanks go to the young people from MaD Theatre Company and FC United of Manchester, who turned out on a freezing day in February for the shoot in Angel Meadow. Thanks, too, to the person who let members of the cast use the loo in his flat: I gather your other half’s face was a picture when a procession of strangers in Victorian costume suddenly appeared in your living room!
