In 1967, James Mason presented this film based on the writings of Geoffrey Fletcher. It’s a fascinating nose into some of the less familiar corners of London, with some great footage from the city of the 60s. The tap dancer you see in the film only died quite recently at the age of 97. I found this out from being an inveterate archive nerd.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
