'Betrayal in the Paddock' -A public information film featuring the music of Lupen Crook and Oliver Burgess and my Pinhole Photography. In 1815 the Paddock area of Chatham was made into a public garden which the people of the time stated they wished to see remain for a period of at least 400 years. Now, less than 200 years later, Medway Council has made plans to destroy part of it and build a bus station in it's place. They need to build a new bus station because if they simply refurbish the old one they'll have to hand back a 6 million pound grant, and that means some will loose out on a lot of brown envelopes. 12 minutes in length.
