Remember the nursery rhyme ‘Oranges and Lemons’? The bit that goes: ‘”When will you pay me?” say the bells of Old Bailey’ and the reply ‘”When I am rich,” say the bells of Shoreditch’ ?

Benjamin Till is creating a new TV film that will weave all the old bells of the rhyme together (Shoreditch and others), using local people and his own musical composition. You can hear Joan Rose, whose parents had a shop on Calvert Avenue, in this clip -< http://news.bbc.co.uk/go/em/fr/-/1/hi/england/8048283.stm >
