Bob Warman begins the item with piece to camera on a plot of land at Yardley Wood. He knocks in a wooden stake (see notes) and marks out twelve feet to demonstrate how narrow the proposed houses will be.
He explains that Birmingham's Planning Committee are not convinced that the house design is suitable and are therefore visiting a similar development in Cheshire to talk to residents.
Warman then conducts vox pops asking if people would like to live in such a small house.

During Bob Warman's piece to camera in this item he used a mallet he had borrowed from the prop stores at ATV in Birmingham.
Unfortunately by using the mallet himself (as an NUJ member) rather than bringing a props man to the location shoot he angered the broadcast trade union who blacked the following night's broadcast of ATV Today.
