Edition 18: Night

Blurry lights at night

Photo by Shehani Fernando

"Night in London is a brief period of infinite possibility" wrote the journalist and travel writer HV Morton in the 1920s, and nowhere is this truer than in Hackney, which from doors open till dawn chorus becomes an asphalt jungle for revellers, criminals, artists, lovers, all night eateries and taxi drivers.

In the latest and most extensive in a series of themed editions, the Hackney Podcast brings you a night in the life of this 24-hour borough through the words of its inhabitants, as we meet Mare Street's moonlight bookseller, skirt the edges of a Dalston stabbing, rescue a lost and disillusioned party-goer, feast on a Turkish spread at Somine, trail a Homerton rubbish truck, and greet dawn with the street traders of Broadway Market. Along the way we hear readings from HV Morton and commentary from Night Haunts author Sukhdev Sandhu, helping to reveal some of the strange allurement of the dark unknown.

    This is the first Hackney Podcast I've listened to, it's fantastic. Who did the music and sound design for this edition? Was it bespoke? It's brilliant. Reminds me of Robin Rimbaud's homage to Derek Jarman, 'The Garden Is Full Of Metal'.

    Will certainly be making this a regular listen.

    Thanks Alex. All credits above! Next programme on walking in Hackney. And talking of Derek Jarman, do you know Sherre DeLys's piece about his garden? You can hear it on this site along with some other great audio features: http://www.inthedarkradio.org/?page_id=1482

    With havin so much content and articles do you ever
    run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My site has a lot of completely unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being stolen? I'd certainly appreciate it.

    Employees are sometimes given guidelines for self appraisal while the immediate superior also does the

    Francesca,
    I greatly enjoyed the NIGHT piece. Can you let me know the name of the band with a horn section playing in the background early in the podcast? I want to hear more of their music.
    Thanks

    Hi Francesca,
    I'm doing some illustrations based on the stories told in these podcasts for a Masters project at Central Saint Martins.. I was wondering if it was OK to use direct transcription of some of the stories told to accompany the illustrations? I can send you images of what I'm doing, if you like, to give you an idea. It's a project about characters of London and their stories, with an East London slant. :) Also, I was trying to find more information on the night bookseller on Mare Street online, but can't seem to find anything. Do you (or does anyone) know if he's still around there these days? Thanks! -Rebecca Hendin

    This is an older LCD monitor so just about any monitor should act as long since it is
    a DVI connection or perhaps a newer VGA monitor. So once you see it and extremely start to think you can cut the
