20200329With the rise of internet shopping, high rental rates and declining footfall, it appears that the end is nigh for our high streets. But the end has been nigh for at least the last 50 years and yet still it keeps re-inventing itself. Dr Jade Halbert goes back to her native Glasgow to speak to people who fear that this time there may well be a wolf at the door and others who believe that a revolution is coming which will mean a re-think, but not necessarily the death, of the high street as we've come to know it.

Producer: Tom Alban

Dr Jade Halbert ponders the veracity of the long-running warnings of high street demise.

Exploring music, history, science, philosophy, film, visual arts and literature.
