The East Tower's Last Story: Meet the Demolition Crew
Artist Hilary Powell's new film, Multistory, will mark the demolition of the East Tower that was once the home of CBBC. And who better to embody both childhood and destruction than kids with sledgehamers? She called on the most adventurous youth group of them all, White City Adventure Playground.
Footage of the Adventure Playground children in action, as captured below, will be interspersed in Powell's final film with scenes of readers narrating Ted Hughes' equally destructive tale, The Iron Man. It's a violent homage to that CBBC story-reading classic, Jackanory. Read more about Multistory here, and be sure to look out for the film come late September.
