UK, 1983 (MIFF 1984)

Director: Sirka-Liisa Konttinen

Since 1969 Byker, a long-established working class suburb of Newcastle-on Tyne, has undergone "re-development". Traditional community values have suffered with the onset of consumerism and alienation.

Konttinen combines dramatised sequences with the testament of her own photographs taken during the period of change "Byker" is one of the new-style documentaries made with assistance from Channel Four Television.
