Time and Tide: The Thames, Greenwich and its forgotten past (Trailer 2022)
“Time and Tide: The Thames, Greenwich and its forgotten past” explores the relationship between people, forgotten histories, a changing landscape, and the environment along the river Thames at Greenwich.
Filmed over six years this 75 minute film is not a history of the area but instead a moving and poignant collection of people’s reflections and own personal histories with this once industrial shoreline. Through art, objects, and words, Paul Wyatt’s film captures voices at a time of immense change and transition and uncovers scraps and figments of the past that paint a reflective and emotional portrait of this quietly historic shoreline.
The film also considers the area’s relationship with the Thames through ecology, wildlife welfare and plastic pollution in the river.
Featured in “Time and Tide: The Thames, Greenwich and its forgotten past” are mudlark and artist Nicola White, fellow artists Peter Kent and Remiiya Badru, writer Ian Tokelove, Tony Day from Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park, storyteller Richard Sylvester as well as historian Mary Mills, Port of London Authority, Royal Museums Greenwich and members of Greenwich Yacht Club.
