Hawksmoor/psychogeograhy walk – with John McCarthy, for BBC Radio 4

“I did a little Hawksmoor/psychogeograhy walk – with John McCarthy, for BBC Radio 4. It went out this morning (Saturday Dec. 22nd 2012) at around 9.45. And can probably be excavated something.”

Still available at this link today 25th of December, a something nice and relaxing for Boxing day if you haven’t heard it already.


Iain starts at 40 minutes.

“[…] thrill to the atmosphere of Hawksmoor Churches in East London, with John McCarthy and writer Iain Sinclair […]”

London’s Olympic Park – a future ruin?

Three years ago – with the Beijing Olympics about to start – Evan Davis went for a walk around the 2012 Olympic site with author Iain Sinclair, who was apprehensive and sceptical about the London project.

Now – with the games just a year away – the presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Today programme returned to east London for another stroll to see if Iain Sinclair had changed his opinion about the grandest of Grand Projects. They started in nearby Victoria Park.
