Of All The People … in Bern (3)

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010


These are our statistics about space travel as seen in the theatre lights of the show in Bern.

After a quiet start on Friday and Saturday it was great to see over a hundred people visit the show on Sunday. Having the framework of being part of India Forum and in Switzerland has provided an interesting focus and led to some surprising statistical finds. For example, the same number of people were born in Switzerland last year as are born in India each day and both countries have the same number of daily McDonalds customers.

I returned to England yesterday using almost every available form of transport – bus, train, plane, coach and car. The show is now in the very capable hands of Jake and Jack.


Of All The People … in Bern (2)

Saturday, January 16th, 2010

The show opened here on Thursday evening to an enthusiastic response. The venue was built in 1897 as a riding school but is now a cultural centre, with restaurant, cinema, theatre etc and a centre for radical politics. We are in the big hall which provides a very atmospheric setting for the show. It’s also very cold (so cold that the printer won’t work on our table) so we are having to duck in and out of our nice warm research and printing room on a relay basis. The cold shouldn’t put off visitors though who are able to get nice hot cups of specially prepared chai tea.



Birmingham – Bern

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

Jake, Jack and me are off to Bern on Monday with Of All The People In All The World. The crates are packed and ready to be picked up by the couriers who will hopefully make it through the ice. The maximum daytime temperature in Birmingham today will be -2. The maximum daytime temperature in Bern today will be -2. The minimum temperature in Birmingham tonight will be -7, in Bern it will be -6. So when we get there it should feel positively barmy.
