An officially approved essay by Saint announcing a more positive attitude by English Heritage and the RCHM (England) to the listing and recording of post-Second World War buildings, of which only four had Grade I listed status at that time (Royal Festival Hall, the Jodrell Bank Telescope, Coventry Cathedral and the Willis Faber building in Ipswich).
