anyone see tonight’s episode? What it covered, it covered very well, but to leave it the whole New Town Movement in a documentary on 20th century building in the SE and London was remiss to say the least. He also failed to address the link between the rise of the motor car and the rise of suburbia, also pretty remiss. He did make the link between the railways of the inter war years and the growth of more expansive places to live but the real engine for such growth was, in a wonderful play on words, the motorways and the private car.

Anyway, plenty of good stuff and tonnes of moody camerawork, and some nice unexpected oddities such as a Lido, and a Hindu Temple. Not sure if and when this may be available online.
