Delighted to discover that “Lost City”, J.B. Priestley’s 1958 film revisiting the sites of his Bradford boyhood, is available to view on the BBC website. This film is essential viewing for anyone interested in Priestley’s relationship with his Bradford past, but has been very difficult to access. We don’t have a copy in the Priestley Archive!
