Twin Oaks on the BBC 4

Andy Warhol is said to have quipped, “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.”  I might have just had my moment, but it was something less than 10 minutes long.

The BBC came to film part of their series “Utopia – In Search of the Dream” at Twin Oaks a few months back.  I got to tour their charming reporter, Richard Clay, around. Below is the small section of that hour-long piece which is just on Twin Oaks.

Apparently sharing clothes is so novel that they turned this part of the interview into one of the advertisements for the show.

Sadly, because of copyright issues, you can not view the full video outside of the UK.  But Maximus of Cambia was kind enough to clip the piece about Twin Oaks for the above YouTube video. The full hour-long Utopia program is pretty compelling and touched on Hitler, Bucky Fuller, the UK Garden Cities, and the Shakers movement.

Separately, I am also happy to have been asked to be part of the first FIC video on recruiting.
