These are some of the other things I’ve been doing lately:
History of Waterloo
I agree with Geoffrey Fletcher that ‘a man can do everything better in London – think better, eat and cheat better, even enjoy the country better’.
A few years ago I made a 45-minute documentary film about the streets in London where I live, drawing on historical archives and the recollections of people who’ve been living on the street since as far back as the 1930s. Why did William Blake come here to stargaze? Why has Waterloo always been home to the performing arts? What was it like here during the Blitz? And what on earth is a bag wash shop? Find out by watching A Village on a Street.
Listen to a podwalk (audio guided walk) of the ‘backstreets of Southwark’ that I did for the 2008 London Festival of Architecture.
I’m currently working on a digital restoration of a History of Waterloo ‘tape slide show’ made by Michael Bruce in the early 1980s.
