Meet Me at the Cemetery Gates

 
From recollections of playing the Lone Ranger just after the war and recipes for foraged rose hip jam to murderous tales of carrion crows and the history of scrapyard meadow, all threaded through with field recordings of wildlife and bird song.


Radio journalist Jo Morris spent days recording the thoughts and memories of regular visitors to the cemetery. Tower Hamlets resident and producer Susanna Grant has collected and woven them together in this unique exploration of the borough's history as a refuge and home for immigrants.
