London Compass

London Compass

This indie gem is released at vast intervals, but worth the wait between instalments. Its premise is broad and mysterious, promising stories "from London to everywhere". In practice, that has brought us three, largely first-person, stories: one about a pair of shipwreck hunters; one about a witch who knits; and one, the stand-out, about a man's struggle for life after he collapses during a friendly game of football. Told in the voices of those who witnessed it, the scene is constructed in elaborate detail - the sort of detail one only acquires in significant, flashbulb memory moments - and invites us to consider the fragility of the everyday and the fallibility of the body. Reminiscent of Everyone Else, London Compass turns its clear eye upon unusual characters, and through them shows us to ourselves. New episodes every few months (!), the most recent in February.
