The Littlewoods Building has a bright future ahead as the Hollywood studios of the north, but it’s own history is worthy of a star-turn on the silver screen.
Show Notes

Each day, tens of thousands of people drive past the Littlewood Building on Edge Lane - which is one of the key gateways in and out of Liverpool.

Some people may not give it a second thought to this art deco gem, but this venue has a whole new lease of life ahead of it as the Hollywood studios of the North.

You may be surprised to know that the buildings' own story is worthy of a star-turn on the silver screen.

We're talking to Dr Ruth Doughty from LJMU who is a leading the project, local writer and historian Jeff Young and John Moffat from regeneration specialists Capital and Centric - an organisation pledging to chronicle the stories of the past for the future, as the Littlewoods Building moves on to its next exciting chapter.
