Town with Nicholas Crane is an exciting new TV documentary series made by the BBC and Tern TV in conjunction with The Open University. Supported by academics from the Faculty of Social Sciences, 'Towns' explores a number of the important issues that are impacting today on towns across the UK and beyond: from questions of economic, social and environmental sustainability through to issues of social dislocation and the impact of economic change. The Towns series considers many of the ways in which towns have come to be the places they are today; places that while shaped by often very different histories, are also looking towards futures that might also be very different but which are all characterised by uncertainty.
OpenSpace has recently launched a newsletter with information about the Centre, forthcoming events, latest publications and research funding successes.
