Wigan Pier Documentary Series
The Brief
as featured in 

It’s been 80 years since George Orwell saw his famous book ‘The Road To Wigan Pier’ published and to mark this extraordinary anniversary Reach Publishers has commissioned us to go back to the towns and cities Orwell first visited to find out what has really changed in the 80 years since the book's publication.


We have produced a series of 5 short documentaries taking viewers from the homeless streets of Birmingham to the historic shipping docks of Liverpool in an attempt to reveal the human stories of people living in poverty. We've also created 1 poetic film featuring passages from the book, a trailer and an animated title intro for all the films.


The films have been featured in National magazines, on a special Wigan Pier Anniversary website, across The Mirror's social media channels and have aired on the popular SKY Channel, Together TV.
