I picked Steve up in Bath on the way back from Cardiff to London yesterday. His son is at Bath Spa University so we put all of the possessions from his accommodation in the back of the car and set off. (Rebecca and Harry had already left on the train.)
This meant that he was with me when I stopped at Hammersmith to take PG out for his weekly grocery shop. To my surprise they bonded, as we drank coffees in COFX, over a writer called Jeremy Seabrook, Peter having directed a play of his called Life Price in 1969, and Steve having read his work on social and economic justice in a professional capacity.
PS I noticed from The Guardian that there was a documentary called "The Clinic" on ITV last night: the story of the rise and fall of the Tavistock Centre's Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS). It is available here on itvX. Steve is at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. I wonder if he knows about the show or might be interested in it?
