Overview

Britain on film logo

In Autumn 2011 Andrew Kötting (Gallivant) filmed an eccentric journey by swan-shaped paddle boat, in the company of writer and London obsessive Iain Sinclair. Navigating the rivers and canals linking Hastings to London's Olympic park, the two reflect on London, England and the ways their trip may change them. Along the way they meet comedian Stewart Lee, writer Alan Moore and actor Dudley Sutton.
