Meades Meets The Future on the Isle of Lewis

One of my favourite people, Jonathan Meades, is back on BBC 4 with a new series, this time called Off Kilter which is all about the architecture and symbolism of Scotland. Thanks to the Meades Shrine you can watch this and every series on YouTube and you should (just don't tell too many people or the BBC that you're doing it). In the clip to the right Meades has gone to the Isle of Lewis & Harris and found a Ballardian futurescape of rust and beauty. Because the clip has been uploaded in glorious hi-def you'll need to pause it for about a minute after the circle thing stops loading, so that it will play without interruption. (It's worth the hassle.) And check out more Meades on YouTube.
