Edition 14: Water

A rainy dayThis Sony Award-winning programme looks at water and how it fits into the lives of people in Hackney. Author and psycho-geographer Iain Sinclair follows the route of Hackney Brook, a subterranean ghost river which runs from Highbury to Hackney Wick and still makes its presence felt in ways both immediate and oblique. Then to Clissold Leisure Centre for Wet Sounds, a new music event in which electro-acoustic composers Francisco Lopez, Stefano Tedesco, Tom Haines and Leafcutter John serenade their floating audience through speakers both above and below the water.

Moving on to London Fields Lido, architectural historian Simon Inglis explains how swimming pools in Hackney have their roots in the wash houses set up by 19th-century philanthropists in the battle against cholera.  And we hear from the people who work and live on Hackney's waterways today.

    Isn't Felix Carey one of the composers?

    Hi Maud, yes indeed! We haven't been in the habit of adding individual credits, but now you can see who did what on this one.

    This Podcast reminds me of a mix of abstract cultural anthropology of water and people relating along canals.

    As such, the dozens of new levels will have varying themes.

    Games that really engage consumers result in people talking, building relationships, and even creating a
    community around the game or the brand. The HD version has the same gameplay functionality
    as its sibling but with an entirely redesigned interface especially
    for the i - Pad's far superior screen.

    Wow, marvelous weblog layout! How long have you been blogging for?
    you made running a blog glance easy. The whole look
    of your site is magnificent, let alone the content material!

    We didn't know what types of links it was targeting,
    or how it functioned.

    More than a month out from preliminary launch sufficient reason for service expanded to the
    majority of key countries, Pokemon-Go programmer Niantic is eventually transforming its focus on its other massive problem: cheaters.

    My brother suggested I may like this website. He was once
    entirely right. This put up actually made my day. You cann't believe simply how so
    much time I had spent for this information! Thank you!

    Inside, the suites offer each of the comforts of home (but better), with in room kitchens, modern amenities like
    TVs and Internet, and more. By decreasing pollution, businesses are not merely enhancing the environment, but they're also capable of interest environmentally-conscious guests.
    Unethical and vulgar comments, pictures and videos, when added can be edited from
    these sites through the technical settings.

    You're so interesting! I don't suppose I've read something
    like that before. So wonderful to discover another person with original thoughts on this topic.
    Seriously.. thank you for starting this up. This web site is
    something that is required on the web, someone with a little originality!

    昨天老板把他老婆痛骂了一顿,我还说老板怎么这么混蛋呢!听到这个消息,我突然觉得老板怎么不把他老婆杀掉呢?

    我也曾经有过这种可怕的念头,庆幸当时只是想想,没有付于行动

    美分党改头换面成日元党了,总说国人素质不高,话说你自己的素质怎么样呢?能去鬼子那大采购,你的钱哪来的呢?

    都是在评论自己的看法,有必要骂人吗?可以看得出你的素质。而且,你有没有看到,她只是说了一下,她爸就发火骂她,都能看出点重男轻女的意思吧。而且,怎么就她嫌弃她爸了?讲卫生不对的话,那你以后上厕所也就不要用纸了

    我就喜欢服务态度好的商店。在中国,大多商店服务员素质都很差,一进店就暗暗看你穿着,排了等级。好不容易看中一件要求试一下,她爱理不理的告诉你,这衣服要多少钱,得多贵。我偏偏就试了不买,再在你隔壁店买一堆。

    在里面喷的估计都是穷人。或是没有去过其他国家的人。我们国内人的素质真的和日本人没法比。

    我无语了,作为一个中国人怎么就这么憋屈呢!太丢人了,我们的老大还有什么颜面去这去那吆!我们应该是一条龙,而不是一条虫!!!!!

    逗比分析,我们对菲狗作战消耗会很大,但是菲狗是拼死都无法咬到我们,根据它的奴才性质只要打赢日本它就不战而降。对日作战是要夺岛作战更是无聊,日狗敢开战,就让二炮的怒火全砸东京头上!不过,战争是蒸蒸日上的中国最坏的选择!

    現在是以前嗎?你這什麽心態,社會環境在變,人的思想也不一樣了,以前沒有的病,現在都有了,你怎麽不解釋一下呢,難道都是你釋放的,跟一些老太太帶孩子似得,動不動就以前如何如何,

    这叫正当防卫,以前新闻光看一群家属打医生的了,这回可下看到医生还击了,真是爽!

    飞机很重不能配备降落伞.能不能在客舱和驾驶室单独设置一个呢.遭遇故障的时候飞机自动解体单独把客舱用降落伞吊下来

    过去空难都是起飞降落阶段失事多,去年以来感觉完全不一样啊,对半分了!什么情况?

    要么就打,光报这些有什么用,听着都来气。

    真不知道相关部门在考虑什么?一贯的所谓主张和平,谴责等对于国外强盗又什么用? 你们对于国内人的那种强硬呢?如同拆迁办的那样的胆量呢?真不知道相关部门在考虑什么?一贯的所谓主张和平,谴责等对于国外强盗又什么用? 你们对于国内人的那种强硬呢?如同拆迁办的那样的胆量呢?
