Do you remember me mentioning that I work around the corner from a TV studio? Well they have turned an empty lot across the road from one of our buildings into a film set. So the rubble that was a demolished building is now an allotment full of little sheds and rolls of vegetables. There is a landrover mounted on the back of a low loader with a camera in front of it, so that they can drive it around and film the actors pretending to drive. There are also several dogs that are somehow part of the plot complete with handlers. I just met one of the stage hands who was wheeling a very precious looking platform down the street. He said it was for a drama called "Rosemary and Time" which he described as being Agitha Christi meets Charlie Dimock. You really have to wonder about what gets commissioned sometimes don't you?

Where do you work? And do they need a new member of staff? You're sitting on a gold mine of comedy!

Yep, seriously. I work near the banality that is known only as Wansworth, although my company claim we are near Putney as it sounds posher. The film company took over a shop in Old York Road last year for filming. Anyway, it gives me something to gawk at when I cycle to work but apart from that it's not really that exciting. They mostly film Ready Steady Cook and Richard and Judy in the two studios, which says it all really.

We might be recruiting again soon, so it may be worth a speculative CV, but it will probably just be for software engineers unless one of our admin people decides to leave. I can email you the name and address if you like?

Ah-HA. Thanks for the offer, but my software engineering skills are so second to none that they are in fact... non-existent.

Cycling through Wandsworth is very brave of you...

Nah, you just have to let those big trucks know who is boss. Seriously, I take the back route along the river most times, so no evil traffic until Putney bridge.
