Presented by Francesca Millican-Slater.
“I live in a flat made of wooden walls, 70s carpet and locked doors. In the dark of the night, I listen to the building. It tells of fingerprints on door handles, skins cells in the carpet, ghosts in the plumbing.”
A dissection of a building and its surrounding area, Francesca tells stories about her beloved flat, the area it stands in, what it used to be, what it will become and the people that have populated it. It's a bit standup, a bit biography, a bit documentation, and a love affair with a local area to the tune of bad karaoke.
