  • Abstract

    Although Robert lives in a flat in Slough, he has at times in his life been homeless, living rough. Now in his 50s, he wanted to talk to his younger friend Chris, a homeless man originally from Poland, and to urge him not to make the same mistakes. The conversation was recorded at Serena Hall - a day centre for homeless adults.
  • Description

    The Listening Project conversations collectively form a picture of our lives and relationships today. Recordings were made by BBC producers of people sharing an intimate conversation, lasting up to an hour and on a topic of the speakers' choice.
