201. SECRETS AND LIDOS: the people-powered pool movement

Season 1, Ep. 201

Hello! Lee-doh or ly-doh? We’re asking the big questions about the lido revival taking place across the UK. Many towns and cities saw their outdoor pools close during the twentieth century but lidos are back on the up. Journalist Chris Beanland talks us through the history here and around the world. Emma Pusill tells us about the amazing community groups taking lidos into their own hands. And we chat to Deborah Aydon about her campaign for a brilliant new “people’s pool” on Merseyside.
