Above are photos of some of the people who played a pivotal role in the campaign of the 47 Liverpool councillors. They give their views on the policies and strategy of the Liverpool City Council between 1983 and 1987. Click on the pictures to see and hear their comments.

The range of views includes the unstinting support displayed by Terry Fields and Tony Benn. Guardian journalist Seumus Milne outlines a picture of possible covert activity by special branch to undermine the City Council during those years.
