Q.1287

Based on an idea by Prasanna Narayanan | contribute questions

The Red Road Flats were constructed in Glasgow, Scotland, in the late 60s, and were meant to provide low cost housing. At one time, these were one of the highest buildings in Europe, and controversial for everything from the nature of the construction to the high rates of crime in the area.

Partly demolished in 2012, a proposal was made to demolish the remaining flats on 23 July, 2014, which was dropped after public protests. If it had gone through, why would have millions of people watched this demolition in a live telecast?
