Description: This video programme written and researched by members of the Island History Project on the Isle of Dogs looks at the development of the island from the time of the Romans up until the development of the docks. Using contemporary and archival photographs, illustrations and maps under a new voiceover it looks back on the past from a place of uncertainty as the formation of the London Dockland's Development Corporation and a new enterprise zone foretell enormous change.
