Angel Over Burslem DVD

Burslem's Angel looks guardian like over the town from the tower of the Town Hall. She is said to hold sway over the fortunes of Burslem; and when she is not in her rightful place; the town fares less well.This film is a celebration of Burslem's Town Hall - its history and important - with local historian Fred Hughes; and charts the return of the Angel to the Town in 2002 after restoration.The Angel is really a figure of Nike - the goddess of Victory in battle - and Burslem has certainly been in the wars" in recent years. This documentary looks forward with a new optimism that the Angel will bring prosperity back to the Mother Town."

Produced by Staffordshire Film Archive.
