42:18 – The Doctor’s Wife (1953) extols the virtues of Ex Lax as part of our meditation on illness and medicine.  Dire diagnoses!  Sickening side effects!  Weird dreams and witchcraft by e-mail!  Hairy feet as the key to health!  All part of a general rumination on the limbo long term sickness can leave us in!

Mondo Soho

37:00 The Schlock Express is back on the rails, taking a look at London’s Soho in the sixties through a Mondo lens, courtesy of three classic ‘shockumentaries’. First stop is a trek through the ‘West End Jungle’ and its clip joints, photography ‘clubs’ and escort agencies. We also see ‘London in the Raw’, with its vista of East End pubs, West End clubs, meths drinkers, drug addicts, cat food eating beatniks and hair transplants. Finally, we confront ‘Primitive London’ and its tribes of mods, rockers and beatniks, horrible murders and factory farming.
