A London Adventure, 19 August 2006
Although aimed at kids & teenagers, this drama contained numerous
elements for anyone interested in London's lesser-known museums and
heritage. Indeed, the Tyrant King novel (author Aylmer Hall) was
published by London Transport, and I suspect may have even been
commissioned by them, possibly as a vehicle for increasing public
awareness of some of the capital's forgotten and overlooked treasures.
But it's not dusty and dull: it is a drama, after all, and based on an
intelligent story line. I remember being totally absorbed as the
youngsters chased (and sometimes were chased) around London.
The choice of incidental music was inspired, and provided an extra
atmospheric quality; it was only some years later that I discovered
this to be the Moody Blues. Ah, 1968. Nostalgia!
