Lose yourself in a story of obsession, 40 years of nightlife and 4,000 years of human connection. In The Portal Martin Green, Wils Wilson, and David Greig have woven together a tale of love, music, drugs and deceit over 12 episodes available on Apple Music/Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts and all good podcast platforms free of charge from 25 September.
A story where two obsessive sound-recordists, and lovers torn apart by circumstance; Etteridge and Angela left us the most incredible collection of 20th century documentation ever made.
From 1947 to 1988 they never met. They recorded any and every aspect of London nightlife, from war-time dance-halls to the legendary M25 raves. But these recordings never saw the light of day until they were discovered in 2016.
Why did they keep these tapes secret? Because for 40 years these parted lovers had been leaving messages for each other in these recordings, a dark, dark story left for us to piece together.
"The Portal began as a little day dream that spiralled out of control and out into the real world. The opportunity to be making a piece of work of this size, with these remarkable collaborators is beyond exciting. Audio has always been the world where I feel most at home, and I love stories. As a story-telling form, podcast is a perfect medium for me. It is a perfect halfway house between reading a book, where you get to decide what characters look like for yourself, and film, where you are able to present so much detail."
