This television special about Detroit aired on the BBC this March. If you can find the time to watch it you should. It's a pretty good history of Detroit in an 90 minute special. As you can imagine, some pretty heavy stuff. Mr Findlay kindly breaks the show up into eight You Tube-sized chunks (yours truly makes a cameo in episode eight).
