Director Olly Lambert has spent five weeks living with both sides and, wisely, makes no judgments on the wider politics of the conflict. Instead, he concentrates on the few things that seem certain. The war is being fought in and around the backyards of helpless, brutalised civilians. Dignity, in life or in death, is a thing of the past. And there is no end in sight; this is a conflict of agonising, day-by-day attrition – the death toll stood at 70,000 as the film was finished but, by the time of broadcast, that will be an obsolete figure. An brave and important record of what feels like a truly hopeless situation.
A cafe/bar that's perfectly placed to rest up in after a lengthy visit to the nearby British Museum. The mismatched furniture and spray-painted signs give Fairly Square a charming DIY vibe. Stop in here for a TLC specialty tea, an artisan coffee, hazlenut hot chocolate or homemade gingerade. Stronger stuff can be also be found in the selection of craft beers – including Meantime and Freedom – cocktails and wine. Food wise, Fairly Square invite various foodies to pop-up in their kitchen. Previously they've had Korean Jihwaja.
