Is this a repeat of a program thats already been on? If it is and you haven't seen it watch it, it will make your blood boil.

Tom Dyckhoff visits the Park Hill flats in Sheffield, one of the most controversial listed buildings in Britain. Once heralded as the most pioneering public housing scheme in the country, decades of decline and neglect have transformed it into a grim sink estate. It is now protected by English Heritage, raising questions about what should be saved for the benefit of future generations

A reasonably balanced programme. I think I'd still go with refurbing one of the blocks but letting most of them be torn down.

Im sorry, even after watching it, im afraid its a huge eyesore on the city, and it needs to be pulled down.
