Shepperton Babylon yet again

Earlier this year I reviewed Matthew Sweet's book Shepperton Babylon.

On Thursday week (11 August) BBC4 is showing a documentary based on the book. How can you resist this billing?
The film studios of London are awash with cocaine-fuelled sex, extortion, suicides, and bizarre accidental deaths - not to mention the behind-the-scenes dramas that don't make it into the Sunday papers. It's the 1930s; the British talkie has just been born.
The BBC website also carries an interview with Matthew Sweet.
