In Our Time Episode 5 – The City in the 20th Century

Peter Hall, Professor of Planning at the Bartlett School of Architecture and Planning, University College, London, and Doreen Massey,  Professor of Geography, Faculty of Social Sciences, Open University discuss what makes a city.  This is a really interesting episode, with some good discussion about the way that mixing of cultures and material surplus leads to cultural, scientific innovation. Also some good natured debate about the definition of a city.
