CATHY RENTZENBRINK & TOBY HANNAM - As Clear As Tap-Water

Joining Tom Jackson to discuss the postcards from their pasts are author CATHY RENTZENBRINK (The Last Act of Love, Everyone Is Still Alive) and TOBY HANNAM, whose collection of his grandfather’s correspondence to his father from a Nazi concentration camp are a priceless family - and historical - archive and memoir. We explore postcards as lifelines, postcards as symbols of friendship, postcards in scrapbooks; we stroll from the Tower of London to Harrods pet shop, from Tahrir Square to the British Museum, from the Casual Sex Capital of the UK to an imagined suburban resort via London Zoo. Life in all its beauty and horror, on postcards. Wish you were here?
