Psychology has come a long way since 1979 as have many things. 35 years ago the top selling car in the UK was the Ford Cortina IV and Betamax was still more popular than VHS in the UK home video market.
When this BBC Horizon program was broadcast on November 5th 1979 , ‘One Day At A Time’ by Lena Martell was the UK’s number one single, Weebles wobbled but they didn’t fall down, and earlier in that year ‘Worzel Gummidge’ first hit UK TV screens.
I mention all of this because some former residents from Hill End might feel insulted by this program and I hope that they will try a watch it in the context of its time.
If any former resident that is featured in this video wishes for us to take this post down, can they contact Laurence by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respect your wishes. That said, we feel that many former Hill End residents will find something positive from this program.
I’d like to thank HT for sending this video to us.
The program is entitled ‘A Touch of Sensitivity’ and it lasts 48 minutes. The section which refers to Hill End starts at 27:30 and lasts for approximately 6 minutes.
Comments from former residents are very welcome.
