This week’s guests are:
- Mark Duncan: Artistic Director of Cornucopia Theatre Company
- Gareth Edwards: Historian and Editor of London Reconnections
- Tom Miles: Project Co-ordinator Museum of Writing
- Alan Cole: Original collector Museum of Writing
Under discussion: fountain pens through the ages, the invention of Christmas crackers (including some very bad jokes), an urban panto project, the completion of London Overground, World War II bomb sites, Wi-Fi for cabs, as-yet undeciphered handwriting, homelessness and rare meat in Westminster.
Our question of the week is ‘What gadgets, widgets or apps might London be in need of?’. As usual, the guests are tested with the historical quiz.
