This program features data-mapping techniques that shed light on inner-city conditions in America and England. With an overview of manufacturing declines that took place during the 20th century and their effect on densely populated urban centers, the video compares and contrasts situations in Philadelphia and Birmingham, England. Studying these cities from a human angle, the program delves into Philadelphia's struggling urban core and showcases Birmingham's grassroots and municipal efforts to assist the elderly, the unemployed, and the victims of crime. The result is an informative catalyst for class discussions on severe economic shifts and how cities cope with them.
