A journey from the fringes of the New Town, to the kinetic glow of The City. Working class aspirations and unfulfilled desires, a predatory welfare system and a longing for lost futures — all via the M25. Obsession, transformation, enchantment and romance.
All elements produced by Chris Michael. Narration by Sarah McNab. Features a sample from "People are People" by Depeche Mode and a poem written by the ghost of Lukas Wainman and featured in "The Vertical Plane" written by Ken Webster.
