DVD Now Available of Make No Little Plans: The City Builders' Stories

“Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men’s blood and probably themselves will not be realized.

Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will never die, but long after we are gone will be a living thing, asserting itself with ever-growing insistency.”

Daniel Burnham, Chicago architect (1846-1912)

Following a packed screening as part of the MK51 Birthday Open Weekend, Make No Little Plans: The City Builders’ Stories is now available on DVD from our online shop. Described by audience members as “excellent”, “informative”, and “moving”, this documentary combines new and historic interviews with archive footage and photographs.

This is a film for those who want to know about the early stages of our hometown, which combines local history with personal anecdotes. Watch the stories of these passionate and ambitious city builders, who dedicated their lives to building a unique city from empty farmland and daring dreams.

Make No Little Plans: The City Builders’ Stories is the first step in our project MK50: The People’s Story (funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund). This project captures the memories of the people of Milton Keynes in their own words.
