The Lost City of Craigavon

Newton Emerson’s celebratory and irreverent look at the lost city of Craigavon, unearthing the original plans, meeting the evicted farmers and visiting the residents of the experimental city. Warning – contains a lot of cycling.

In this BBC documentary from 2008, local lad Newton Emerson goes in search for the lost city of Craigavon and discovers why the reality fell short of the utopian dream.
