Today’s topics include how London's mood changed during the Olympics, readers' opinions about the Games, the London Stone and the Blue Plaque Scheme. NQW poses his usual historical quiz at the beginning of the podcast and gives the answers at the end of the show.
NQW interviews Peter Rees, who is the Planning Officer for the City of London, talking about his tasks and typical working day. He also gives us an update on the stalled Pinnacle building, and tells us that "even Milton Keynes will be habitable one day".
