1 hour version, first broadcast 5pm, 19th December 2016 on Resonance FM in London.
Every month, interesting people talk about the music, films and music for films which have shaped their lives.
2016 Christmas special. Tim Concannon and Roz Kaveney visit the Cinema Museum in Oval, South London – the former Lambeth workhouse, where Charles Chaplin spent Christmas one year as a small boy – and one of his homes in Kennington, where Chaplin grew up.
Recorded in September as part of the annual Scalarama film festival – when we screened Chaplin’s film ‘The Immigrant‘, which has its centenary in 2017, near to his childhood home at 39 Methley Street – we also talk to Gilliam Plowman, writer of the play about Chaplin that was on at the Cinema Museum ‘The Little Tramp‘, and to the actor David Flint.
