The Incredible Harvey Gould

April 19, 2014

Currently I am making a film with Hazuan Hashim of an extraordinary Londoner called Harvey Gould. We have interviewed him at home and out and about in his life long stomping ground of Soho. The film will be finished in June.

Harvey has a wonderful story to tell of his life and times (from the second world war onwards) in Soho. Watch out for details of the film launch on this blog.
