BBC Four: London on Film featuring Harrow

There was an interesting 30 minute programme on BBC Four earlier this week, about ‘The Suburbs’ which detailed the history and development of London’s suburbs: much of it featured Harrow and other areas which grew out of Metro-Land.

You can view this on the BBC’s iPlayer service, here. It’s available until July 12th, so you’ve got just a week to watch.

As the BBC say, “From the start, suburban London has been captured on film. For some it is a gracious retreat while for others an unwelcome exile. This is a confusing world of tidy semis, old villages and sprawling estates, of commuters, hidden lives and conflict – revealed entirely through archive images.”
