“The Soapboxers”. Filmed at the historic Hyde Park "Speakers Corner" in London.
This film is a tour of serious odd-ball characters jumping up and down on their soap-boxes with their unique Londoner's humor as they threaten, cajole and entreat us to mend our ways.
Politics, sex or religion, nothing is out of bounds, or beyond the often, outrageous retorts from the hecklers.
Nothing is too taboo or sacred, and no one is safe from the voices of dissent. Besides the usual mix of bohemian radicals also included are fundamentalist, doctors, prohibitionists, and the occasional raving lunatic.
The film includes a rare interview with Lord Soper at 93. Donald Soper's international reputation as a dedicated evangelical speaker included a "soap-box" Ministry every Sunday in Hyde Park.
