News and Views
Londonist Out Loud is presented and produced by N Quentin Woolf. This week’s show comes from Battlebridge Basin in King’s Cross. The guests are:
- Christopher Fowler, author of the Bryant and May mystery novels as well as many other things
- Fiona Rule, author of London’s Labyrinth and The Worst Street in London
The guests discuss their own projects as well as recent London news and features. Topics include: the allure of London’s history, the redevelopment of King’s Cross, underground spaces, London’s mythology, what happens to rubble from excavations, the almost forgotten Colney Hatch tragedy, Fenton the dog in book form, coats to charities and free travel for the over 60s.
As usual, the guests are tested with an historical quiz, and NQW reads out some of the best upcoming shows and events around town.
