Episode 1: Levelling Up

Summary

With access to Bradford's district nurses, police and council workers, this series follows the people dedicated to making their city a better place - from the frontline workers patrolling the streets all the way up to the leaders making strategic decisions in the City Hall

Review

How does a city work? Who and what makes its hidden plumbing of council services, policing, healthcare and the rest run smoothly – or not? They’re good, meaty questions for a documentary series to take on and, although previews weren’t available, this five-part exploration of Bradford looks as if it had the kind of access that might offer interesting answers.

Press notes promise a unique insight into “the UK’s youngest and most entrepreneurial city”, from frontline workers patrolling the streets to leaders making the strategic decisions, and from health inequalities to the challenges of tackling rough sleeping – with, be assured, “plenty of Yorkshire warmth and humour along the way”.
