Liverpool life after lockdown

We talk to Professor Michael Parkinson who has chartered Liverpool's history to find out how he thinks a post-coronavirus Liverpool will look like for residents and businesses.

Liverpool, like every other city around the world, is facing a crisis never experienced before. 
 
The city has already gone through years of economic decline, but instead of falling in to the abyss, it fought back against austerity. And, despite existing  (pre-covid) challenges, in 2019 it was named one of the most improved cities in the UK, and a desirable place for people to live, work, study and visit. 
 
We talked to Professor Michael Parkinson who has chartered the city’s history to find out how he thinks a post-coronavirus Liverpool will look like for residents and businesses.
