A voyage in the style of Daniel Defoe’s Diaries, Robinson ventures beyond the Capital when commissioned to carry out a study of ‘the problem of England’. He sets out with assumptions about the country’s economic failure, but gradually realises that localised poverty and dilapidation are the works of the previous Conservative government. Almost still photography contrasts with a complex commentary (again, by Scofield) in this companion piece to Keiller’s London.
