New Travel Video : “Life Afloat” – Houseboat Life On Thames River, England

Filmed and Directed by: Sav Kyriacou and Matthew Rosenberg

It is estimated that over a thousand people live afloat on the Thames between Teddington Lock and the Thames Barrier. These floating villages have a rich and, until now, untold history. Based on photography, archive research and oral history interviews, this exhibition draws together the past and the present, tracking the evolution of houseboat life on one of the world’s most vibrant rivers.

Music by Bloch Eyot from the Magic Folkgrass album featuring Above the Storms, Thames Upstream and Long Highway.
