The History of Our Secret Streets

Dear Friends,

Starting this Friday, July 25th, the second series of The History of Our Secret Streets is launched on BBC2, to tie in with the Glasgow Commonwealth Games.

Three streets feature: Moray Place in Edinburgh, Footdee (Fitty!) in Aberdeen, and Duke Street in the East End of Glasgow – and this is the order of transmission too.

The broadcast dates are Friday 25th July, Friday 1st August and then the final transmission date is not yet confirmed but we think it will be earlier than the Friday, but certainly sometime during the week of the 4th August.

In addition to the TV programmes, we have produced an accompanying hard copy print item – The Street newspaper. Hard copies of these can be ordered from the OU at the link below and this is also reproduced on OpenLearn and is now available at:

(I will try and bring along some copies to future focus group meetings).

I hope that you will publicise the series among your friends, neighbours and colleagues.

I would also be pleased to hear your thoughts on the series.

Cheers and enjoy!
