The eyes of the world are on Castleford. The regeneration of the Yorkshire town has attracted Channel 4, which is making a show about the project. According to its website, the channel 'chose to work [on the scheme] because of the? unusual pride people in Cas have.' Did it notice vandals had defaced the centrepiece of Martha Schwartz's village green before it was unveiled? Pictures taken prior to the opening of the park clearly show graffiti down the side of the scheme's main sculpture. That certainly is 'unusual' pride.
