All Circles Vanish – Crop Circle Video, 2010

A short video about crop circles seen this summer in Wiltshire and Somerset. I wasn't able to afford a helicopter (though they are only £80 to hire – maybe next year) so no beautiful aerial shots, just ground level and from nearby hills. This year's crop were popping up all over the place; Warminster (home of the first ones in the 1980s) had its first one for thirteen years and there was one near Westbury White Horse for the first time in years too.

The song chosen is from Broadcast and the Focus Group Investigate Witch Cults of the Radio Age, a lovely album (and The Wire's album of the year last year), recalling innocent childhoods and TV theme tunes from the 1970s, tinged with an underlining tension.
