Life on Watling Street


'Storyville: Documentary in which critically-acclaimed filmmaker Marc Isaacs paints a rich portrait of multicultural life in the UK by looking at the lives of immigrants living along the A5, one of Britain's longest and oldest roads. Stretching from London to the Welsh coast, the road has always been an important lifeline for new émigrés. Today, it is a microcosm of the wider world, and the film meets people from across the globe whose lives now orbit around the road. '

The A5 is the old Roman road, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watling_Street . Still a vital artery, and one which has seen many many small and large waves of migration - starting with the Romans themselves, or maybe even the Celts who were immigrants in their day. There should be a life in the UK question on this.

Time will linger, time outlasts.
