The only way is Harpurhey

Today I heard that a new TV series, called ‘The Estate’, is to be filmed in one of the most deprived areas of greater Manchester, Harpurhey. The local vicar is “keen to show is that there is a lot of hope in this community… there’s a lot we can do to show the area in a positive light”. Whilst the sum of the footage may well reveal that, it is all in the editing… and I fear the net result may not be ‘cut to flatter’.
