BBC London on Hackney and our book only 16 days left to listen!

Kit was invited on to talk to Robert Elms about Acquired for Development By and Hackney’s changes a few weeks back.

It was a very interesting discussion and brought up some fascinating questions.

There are only 16 days left to listen to the podcast – but you can download it within those 16 days to your computer to put aside if you don’t have time.

http://downloads.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/london/elms/elms_20120418-1635a.mp3

Kit comes on at around 1 hour 6 minutes, but the whole show is very interesting and Hackney focused, so it’s well worth listening to it all.

Lovely review in the Hackney Citizen

 We received  a very positive review from the Hackney Citizen.
 
You can read it online here:

Or from our incredibly professional scan of the physical paper here:
 

BBC London discussion on changes in Hackney

On Thursday, Kit was asked to come on Robert Elms’ show to talk about the gentrification of Hackney and Acquired for Development By…

Most of Robert’s show was talking about Hackney so it’s well worth listening to the first hour before the interview starts (there are a few non-related sections you can skip through should you wish).

You can listen to the show on the BBC iPlayer here:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p00q9bdh/Robert_Elms_Damon_Smith_Kit_Caless_Larry_Peter_Harrison_and_New_Street_Adventure/

The section with Kit starts at around 1 hour 7 mins.

BBC, innit.

Don’t forget, you can pre-order a copy of the Acquired For Development By from our online shop: http://influxpress.com/online-shop/
