It started out as a miserable morning – what with all the rain – but it was soon brightened by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie who joined us to talk on Phonogram and the tunes behind the making of the comic.
Described most simply as a modern dark-fantasy comic, Phonogram follows a social group of spiteful pop-obsessive magicians called Phonomancers, who channel and exploit their magic to achieve their desires. Intrigued?

Lecture 2: ‘Versatility and the Gloomy Stores of History’, introduced by David Pearson
The 2010 series of lectures offers fresh perspectives on the early modern and 18th-century book trade in England. London dominated this industry, but relatively little has been known about the commercial environments in which books were published.

Dancing on the line between dubstep, house and UK funky, Hyperdub crew LV mix up an exclusive set of advanced oddities coming from their ever evolving London scene.
Tracklist is top secret, but here’s a revealing interview with the faceless crew.
The LSO’s Principal Trumpet for 30 years, Maurice Murphy, retired from the orchestra in June 2007 – truly the end of an era. Maurice is one of the best known, most admired and loved trumpeters in the world. In this exclusive programme, Tommy Pearson takes an affectionate journey through Maurice’s career, talks to many of his colleagues and friends and hears some of his greatest moments as a player.
Composer John Williams talks about the first Star Wars sessions – Maurice’s first notes as principal in the LSO – and how he subsequently wrote with Maurice in mind for Superman, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter; Michael Tilson Thomas recalls the power of a Maurice Mahler 5; Co-Principal Rod Franks talks about his 43 year friendship with Maurice; many other colleagues, including Gerry Ruddock, Nigel Gomm, Patrick Harrild and Gerald Newson contribute their own memories; and we also hear from Maurice’s family – his son Martin and wife Shirley.
But at the centre of the programme is an interview with Maurice himself, as he looks back on an extraordinary career from boy wonder in brass bands, losing out to a Pearly King in Opportunity Knocks, becoming principal cornet in Black Dyke, moving into classical music with the BBC Northern, and landing the LSO job. We also hear speeches and tributes recorded at Maurice’s LSO retirement party in June.
It is the portrait of a legend; but one who remains modest and humble. “I’m just another trumpeter who’s been very lucky” he says. No-one believes that for a moment.
Peter Bazalgette, great great Grandson of Sir Joseph Bazalgette on the story of his ancestor’s proposal for a sewage system for London.
London Without…Bazalgette is a guided trail that celebrates one of London’s most important if not fragrant inventions, the sewage system invented by Victorian Engineer Joseph Bazalgette. With an I-Phone app, scratch n’ sniff cards and a special podcast, London Without… Bazalgette is intended to give the participant a visceral experience of life both before and after Bazalgette’s brilliant solution to London’s sewage problems. The trail takes in hidden parts of the Embankment, the remarkable Crossness Pumping Station and the Broad Street pump memorial. During the Story of London Festival, the walks will be available on each weekend (2nd/3rd & 9th/10th of October) at 9am, 1pm and 5pm respectively. The PDF trail is available for download here, along with the I-Phone app and accompanying podcast.
Award winning broadcaster and oral historian Alan Dein walks us down the Caledonian Road, telling the story of the north London street through the voices of the people who live and work on it.
