The ninth in a series of 10-minute videos about the adventures and frustrations of an ordinary (but rather hirsute) General Practitioner. In this one, Dr Hairy keeps trying to fill out his appraisal form - and gets some advice from his friend Grabber about how to do it - with hilarious results! The second of four parts.

London Churches, Part 4


Dates:
Mon May 16, 2011 12:15 - Thu Jun 16, 2011

"The Bank of England. I've never actually seen it before. Monolithic building, like a ziggurat. Staring blank walls, fortress-like. Two grey-haired bearded men in black overcoats, polished black shoes, pacing the pavement, side by side, both smoking cigars, deep in conversation. Incredible: like something out of the 1920s. Grey-haired men with cigars, controlling the economy."
The fourth part of a hyperfiction based on visits to churches in the City of London. Part 4 takes in the following:
St Stephen Walbrook
St Margaret, Lothbury
St Michael, Cornhill
St Peter, Cornhill
St Edmund, King and Martyr
All Hallows-on-the-Wall

New on The Hyperliterature Exchange and Furtherfield for February 2011 - a review of Andy Campbell's four-part digital mystery-story, "Nightingale's Playground", which appeared online last year.
"Campbell has always been at pains not to place his text in front of his images, or beneath them or to one side, like labels on tanks at the zoo or explanatory plaques next to pictures in a gallery ; instead he puts his words inside his graphical environments, sometimes hidden or partially-hidden inside them, so that we have to explore to read. It pulls us in, and it makes his work inherently immersive and interactive... His central characters are often living in a reality with two layers: the "ordinary" everyday world which is mean, dull, shoddy and constricting, but relatively safe; and an inner or underlying reality which can only be glimpsed rather than viewed as a whole, possibly because it is so dangerous and frightening - a reality which emerges fitfully via dreams, games, imaginings and doodles."
To read the whole article, go to http://www.hyperex.co.uk/reviewnightingale.php - or it should be appearing within a couple of days on the Further field site, at http://www.furtherfield.org .review_id=406 .
