108 in London: Lewisham > Blackheath > Peartree Way > Millennium Village > North Greenwich > Poplar > Bow > Violet Road > Stratford City > Stratford International Station

The route proceeds through strikingly contrasting areas: predominantly middle-class Blackheath, the new developments on the Greenwich Peninsula, multi-ethnic Tower Hamlets, to end at the white elephant of Stratford International Station – where, despite its name, no international services call. The audio drama is set from Blackheath to Poplar.

108 in Cape Town: Hangberg > Hout Bay Harbour > Sea Point > Adderley

Under the apartheid system, the Group Areas Act designated Hangberg as a “coloured” residential area. Poverty and unemployment in Hangberg are high, and it has been the site of a number of political protests. Hout Bay & Sea Point contain multi-million rand mansions, luxurious holiday homes and some small wine estates.

Supported by funding from Goldsmiths, University of London Department of Media, Communications and Cultural Studies’ 40th Anniversary Community Fund.
