From Russia with Wallpaper

It's been a hectic weekend here with a Russian crew arriving yesterday morning. The British Embassy in Moscow granted them a visa for 2 days, in which time they had to shoot 48 different wallpapers in 48 different room settings, eat fish and chips, catch a show and take in Piccadilly Circus. 

Brian: That reminds me of the Tatlin Tower, you know, the tower that was designed by the constructivist artist and architect, Vladamir Tatlin as a symbol of modernity for the Bolshevik revolution? It was never built but was planned to be the headquarters of the Comintern in Petrograd, now St Petersburg. At 400m tall, dwarfing the Eiffel Tower, a projector was designed to be positioned at the summit to cast propaganda  across the clouds on an overcast day.

Sarah: Give it a rest. It's a roll of wallpaper for Christ's sake.
