    Dave Tomlin - The Cambodian Embassy

    Dave Tomlin - The Cambodian Embassy

    This week we're bringing you an interview from the Camden New Journal vaults: an interview with Dave Tomlin - a seminal figure in north London's counter culture scene of the 1960s.

    A legend of the squatting movement, in 1975 having been staying in squat in Belsize Park he was looking for someplace new to live.

    One day he walked down Avenue Road, in Swiss Cottage, and he noticed a large, attractive house which had clearly been left empty for some time.

    It was the Cambodian embassy which had been abandoned by diplomats when the Khmer Rouge led by Pol Pot instigated a violent coup in the country.

    Dave and his friends climbed in and made it their home for 15 years before the Home Office was able to finally evict them.

    During that time it became a hub of artistic creation and appreciation known as The Guild of Transcultural Studies.

    Dr Jeff Waage - A Dawn Chorus

    Dr Jeff Waage - A Dawn Chorus

    Dr Jeff Waage joins us on the podcast for an early morning stroll around Hampstead Heath in London to hear the dawn chorus.

    An ecologist by trade and bird watcher, Jeff helps host Dan Carrier listen out for and spot an array of bird species from woodpeckers to jackdaws, blackcaps to wood warblers. 

    Along the way, they meet Alan who has been venturing around this slice of countryside inside the sprawling metropolis for over 60 years and was on his way to feed the crows he has befriended.

    Dr Waage, a member of the Heath and Hampstead Society, has led a project to monitor the numbers of nesting birds and hopes to use the figures to suggest new ways to protect wildlife.
