The Beetham Tower has been getting a lot of media attention recently!
In February 2009, the Beetham Tower was featured on Channel 4’s Vertical City series. The latest news is that the Beetham Tower has been featured on the BBC’s Changing Cityscapes program which was shown on television in April 2009.
The Changing Cityscapes series has been compiled by BBC News. The series examines 5 cities across the UK and how the city landscape has been changing. One of the cities in the series has been Manchester.
Courtesy of the BBC, we have a couple of excepts from the program about Manchester.
