Looking at Plants 2/2


Original playout date: 25 August 2007
Duration: 7:33

A lovely gallery, in fact looking back on it I think it is better than I reckoned to it at the time, and of course both Sara and sophie are on this, as indeed is first wife Izabella and Irina.

The second and concluding part of the visit to Powsin with Sophie and Sara. Here we see the stills gallery and the footage of the palm house. It is accompanied by my own rendering unto Caesar of Enya’s hit “Marbled Halls” and unto God of “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot”.

Quote of the clip: “This idol was made of bone. Bone idol, they call it”
