Su Tong
Binu and the Great Wall


Binu and the Great Wall

Binu And The Great Wall is a wonderful myth retold in the words of Su Tong, the author of ‘Rice’.  The myth of Binu and how her tears washed away the Great Wall have been passed down through the ages. It is a tale of hardship, brutality and undying love. Su Tong’s version of the myth, brings to the reader the harshness and brutality that led to the constuction of the wall and the terrible effects it had on the common people.

'World War II bomb' found in city
Coventry city centre sealed off after WWII bomb alert
The city was expected to be sealed off throughout the night
Parts of Coventry city centre have been closed off after what is believed to be an unexploded World War II bomb was unearthed on a building site.

It was found at the Belgrade Plaza development in Upper Well Street. Police said the device seemed genuine but it was not clear if it was live.

Eight junctions of the ring road were shut and offices evacuated.

The city will remain closed through the night as explosives teams attempt to defuse it.

So there was a bomb scare- I heard the sirens but I was oblivious to it. People in Liquid Bar not a hundred yards away were evacuated but not us. So were we in Beauchamp House not vulnerable too? How come residents in our block were not evacualted?

Added later- what is scary is that there is a clip of my road in the video and I was oblivious  inside the building!
