This week is SOUND week. My favourite week, because I'm doing it. As well as interviewing people about the pool and the night time galas, we are recording samples so that we can weave them together for the soundtrack.

As this is a blog about sound, we thought we'd put some sound in it. This is the sound of the floodlights being set up and turned on.


Like I said, we are recording interviews with people who were involved with the night time galas and the firedive. Today we spoke to Heyward Quevatre, a 94 old former diving instructor who still goes swimming every day (weather permitting. He gave us almost two hours worth of stories about the galas and showed us these photos of him diving at the pool.

When he found out we lived in London, he also told us this joke.
