People of Providence Housing Estate and Some of Its Inhabitants

by Tony Parker

People of Providence Housing Estate and Some of Its Inhabitants Synopsis

Over a period of eighteen months Tony Parker interviewed the residents of an ordinary housing estate in South London. He listened to an assorted mixture of personalities - including a vagrant, two policemen, an often-convicted fence who was the mother of five children, a pro-flogging magistrate, a local doctor, and a 75-year-old widower who spent an hour or two in bed each week with one or other of about twelve different ladies I meet at our church . The inhabitants of Providence opened their hearts, revealing all their quirks, emotions and prejudices. These interviews prove that extraordinary stories are found not only in deserts and jungles: even amid the bleak sprawl of South London, Tony Parker discovered a community that is diverse and enthralling.
