"Cabbies have those little green huts dotted around London where they have tea and Lori knew that there was one near Temple Tube Station. So we jumped on the Tube and found it."
Not surprisingly this was also where we grabbed our first challenge picture - a Typical London Cabbie.
"He wasn't exactly typical as he was smiling (sort of) and didn't put the clock on the minute we stopped to speak to him. But he was kind enough to let us take his picture - so thanks Mr Typical London Cabbie."
Anyway I found out that tonight is Cab Driver Night at the London Transport Museum. it doesn't mean that the place will be filled with taxi drivers, or that they'll take you to London Transport Museum for free. What it does mean is the premier of Zimena Percival's BBC Arena documentary film about the lives of five extraordinary cabbies.
Their: "experience spans 70 years on the unforgiving streets of the capital." and "Arena: Cab Driver goes well beyond the average ten minute journey to unearth the soul of the London cab driver."
Considering the things Zimena can get people to do for her films and the sorts of people she finds, I'm sure that Cab Driver will be fascinating. There will be a question and answer session with Zimena and star of the documentary, Len Fox, after the film. I'm going along tonight with L J Rich and we also have a a pair of spare tickets - so if you want them - please email me with your name, I'll leave them on the door for you. First come first served.
Otherwise it starts at 19.00 and finishes at 20.30. The tickets are only £7.50 (and include free entry to the Museum galleries from 17.00). Tickets should be pre-booked on 020 7565 7298 and full details are here.
