The People’s Palace

BBC4 – Sunday, November 23 at 10pm. Arena. p04cqk2n[1]

Terrific documentary and account of the Roundhouse at 50, it’s beginnings as Arnold Wesker’s brainchild as Centre42 and its¬†evolution into the Rock and counter culture venue in the 1960s and ’70s and later radical theatre stagings.

Director Anthony Wall done a great job pulling together archival footage and latter day interviews with current Artistic Director, Marcus Davey.

Warmly recommended.

Also my own time working at the RH circa 1972 recorded as oral history on their website. Memories working at RH
