The Demolition of Diss Publishing and Norwich Market, plus BSCC at Occold, Diss and Norwich - 10th April 2005

There's some unexpected snowfall in East Anglia, even though the daffodils have been out for a while. Then, the demolition of the part of Diss Publishing that used to be a petrol station in the 1950s continues. There's also the four-weekly W.I. Market by the Mere, a moment from a BBs gig at the Cock Inn, and some ramblings in Norwich, including the demolition and rebuilding of Norwich's outdoor market - turning decades of character into a more homogenised experience
