Description
Developers have announced plans to build an office block above the remains of the Rose Theatre in South London, but they are spending millions to ensure they can still be viewed by the public. However, campaigners claim this isn’t good enough and are vowing to fight on. Nicky Broyd reports; speakers are Martin Myers from Imry Merchant, Simon Jenkins from English Heritage, and actors Timothy Dalton and Dustin Hoffman. Vanessa Redgrave features in an excerpt from the appeal video.
