I very rarely try to catch TV or radio programmes in which I have been interviewed, but after a couple of people mentioned how good the programme was, I did make an exception and tracked down the broadcast from last Monday afternoon.
So I have only just listened to the Radio 4 feature programme “The Summer That Changed London“. As an evocation of London and, in particular, the impact of July 2005 (the month of Live8, the declaration of London as the venue for the 2012 Olympics, the 7/7 bombings, the 21/7 failed bombings, and the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes) on London and Londoners, it is brilliant.
But don’t take my word for it, listen – you can disregard the clips from my interview. But hurry, you only have two days before it comes off the web-site.
