Genome: [r4 Bd=19960112]

In 1958, a short film, A New Day documented the optimistic beginnings of an experiment in social engineering. In the new town of Glenrothes, there would be plenty of jobs at the world's most advanced coalmine, a clean environment, and new high quality housing. Now, as the Development Corporation finally winds up and Glenrothes officially ceases to be a new town, the only thing the rest of the country knows is that it is the home of the neighbours from hell. Producer Dave Batchelor
