John filmed the excavation, marquee celebration, and Whitworth colonisation. He films our Thursday's 2 hours sessions which I break up into these short films I post each weekday. He'll document our residency. And film our new memoirs where we get to hear about Manchester around the time of our 1950s mixed race births. And forge a true understanding of the climate from the mouths of who were around. Here we get to know about John.

John to Carmen: 'I got into smoking too much weed. . . I was in a heavy metal band. My hair was down to my arse . . . I had a beard, purple hair . . . who the fuck had I become?'
John to David: 'It was so sad when the [Reno] fencing went down . . . there was one morning when we wanted to capture the [excavation] sunrise . . . but the best bits are the people interacting.'
Carmen's response to both interviews: 'Now we're excavating souls.'
