A love letter to Toxteth, Liverpool 8
Liverpool 8 is Toxteth and to outsiders the name all too often has a negative charge. Celebrated photo-journalist Don McCullin spent some time there 50 years ago reporting on a community confronted by difficulties and frequently failed by policy makers. Taking one of those images as a starting point McCullin and a team of filmmakers return to show us how Toxteth has evolved as a place and community. This portrait is never sentimental but is positive and hopeful.
