You think you know Manchester?Well, no one knows it like Ed Glinert who has spent more than 40 years unturning every last (Gothic) stone in the city, uncovering layer upon layer of other histories, lesser-known stories, the secret side of the city to create the ultimate “believe it or not”.On this we hear about:* The atomic bunker under Piccadilly Gardens.* Racist GIs during the Second World War and the drama they caused.* The planned demolition of the Town Hall.* L. S. Lowry, the secret sadist.* The planned assassination of Tony Blair.* How the Moors Murderers were caught.* The attack on the paintings at the Art Gallery.* The pillar box that didn’t survive the 1996 IRA bomb events.It’s the Manchester that nobody knows...apart from Glinert and you after you've been on this tour!

What's on else?
