Site and Sound

A couple of years ago, Peter Lamb kindly sent me some DVDs of the Singapore show 'Site and Sound' featuring Julian Davison. The shows features many of the old places that we all remember in Singapore. I've enjoyed watching it all and it's brought back some great memories.
The first two series used to be on YouTube but have now been removed. Hopefully, one day, people in the UK will get to see the show.
Episode One covered sites of original early 19th century imperial settlement. This included, as mentioned on the blurb, 'Fort Canning, City Hall, Supreme Court, Empress Place, Coleman Bridge, Old Parliament house, and St Andrews Cathedral. Julian delineates, describes and depicts the British centre of power in this area for over 150 years.'
