Sat 25 March - HERE IS NEW YORK: No Place Else Is Good Enough

Jules Stewart, journalist and author of Gotham Rising, discusses the rise of New York in the 1930s. He travels the ragged panorama of Manhattan to talk of the stragglers seeking sanctuary among the skyscrapers. Depression-era unrest, its politics, media were played out to the soundtrack of swing, jazz and the movie musical. With sonic interludes featuring Duke Ellington and live tinklings on the Resonance piano.
