ModernBy Allan Prior.
When John Bickerstaffe visits the Eiffel Tower in PARIS, he has a dream that such a magnificent construction could bring fame and fortune to the newly created seaside town of BLACKPOOL.
But when he tries to persuade the townsfolk, it seems that his vision is a little too `modern' for a conservative society at the end of the 19th century.
With Peter Gunn, Stephen Thorne and Sean Barrett.
Director Richard Wortley.
