Channel 4, 2007, 4x3 Minute Wonders

‘StreetShine’ is a new scheme that gives people who have been homeless or suffered disadvantage in the job market the chance to earn a regular income. This series of Three Minute Wonders for Channel 4 goes to the heart of The City and features the extraordinary tales of four London shoe shiners. From an elderly Polish man who escaped Communism in 1981 only to sleep rough by Victoria station, to an ex-drug addict who turned his life around and now shines shoes in the offices of Ernst and Young.

"Seventy something and a shoeshine boy, Jan was wise, jolly and fascinating" Nancy Banks-Smith, The Guardian
