Episode 1 of 10: Sammie Joplin
Sound artist Joplin embarks on a subterranean jaunt from Brixton Water Lane to Clapham High Street conducting various sound experiments en route.
Tunnel Vision is recorded entirely in London’s sewer system. Producer/presenter Bruno Rinvolucri duped a collection of writers, musicians, activists and academics into wading knee deep through swollen rivers of effluvia along the miles of tunnel beneath London. Tunnel Vision’s troglodytes explore this hidden and somewhat mysterious subterranean environment.

Lovely programme… Was the ending staged at all? It sounded very, scarily genuine…
What do you mean by ‘staged’? The producers of the show plan their journeys and usually have a good idea of where they are going to go and what they are going to talk about – however everything in the show is pretty much as it happens!
