Podcast: John & Nick talking about the background to the film

In this episode of Ventures & Adventures in Topography, John Rogers and Nick Papadimitriou take a dérive through James Bone’s The London Perambulator published in 1925 – the book that gave John the title for the film.

Bone’s view of the city was idiosyncratic and hard to pin down, he was drawn to the overlooked and maligned corners of the metropolis. He dreamed of having the keys to the spirit of London and preached the virtues of night-time perambulations in all weathers. Themes that are also present in the documentary.
