    Granada Television: A Cultural History from the 1950s to 1970s.

    This research explores the cultural and historical legacies of the Granada Television Company from the 1950s to 1970s. Funded by the AHRC (2016-2019) the project examines the company’s reputation for being a socially-conscious ‘radical’ broadcaster, its presentation of youth culture and the development of Granada’s visual identity and construction of place, focusing in particular on the organisation’s presentation of Manchester.
