‘Detroit – The Comeback City’ is a film about the rise, fall and rebirth of Detroit – shown through the prism of the Michigan Central Train Station. The station, which has acted as the face of Detroit’s decline for 30 years, has been promised a revival by Ford Motor Company. This one-hour special, narrated by Detroit native and Academy Award-winner J.K. Simmons, includes interviews with Alice Cooper, Bill Ford, astronaut Jerry Linegar, Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. and Pulitzer Prize-winner Dr. Heather Ann Thompson. Detroit rapper Big Sean worked as an executive producer.
Broadcast on Sun 1st July, the film is still available to watch online.
