As 12 o’clock strikes, the Broadgate clock sees Lady Godiva appear whilst an ogling Peeping Tom looks on from above. Back in the city centre, we continue where we finished on episode four. We turn 180 degrees and walk across Broadgate, past the towering marble statue of Earl Leofric’s wife. We pay thanks to the accordion player outside Primark and head past the bus stops along The Burgess.
It’s not compulsory, but these soundscapes are best listened to while wearing headphones! All conversations are authentic and real. The recordings were captured using a binaural microphone between January and April 2022. You can also hear these soundscapes in the accompanying storyteller episodes in our first series.
