Lea Valley in 2005 before the Olympic Blitz
Bob Stanley presents this great look at the urban wilderness of the lower Lea Valley for the Culture Show before work on the Olympic site and the big shopping centre began - includes interviews with Iain Sinclair and Richard Wentworth.
It's well worth seeking out Stanley and Paul Kelly's film, What Have You Done Today Mervyn Day? set around the locations in this video - it's a real gem and brilliantly captures the area at a moment of transition.
