Soho Blues

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Thurs­day, 8.30pm, CI A par­tic­u­larly vi­brant quar­ter of a square mile in Lon­don’s West End, Soho is home to the very rich and the very poor. Ac­cord­ing to this doc­u­men­tary se­ries, ev­ery day about a half mil­lion peo­ple go there to work, shop and en­joy the nightlife. But just when you’re think­ing this may be a ter­rific pro­gram pro­fil­ing some of the char­ac­ters who fre­quent the place — the of­fices of Paul McCart­ney’s MPL Com­mu­ni­ca­tions are lo­cated there, for ex­am­ple — it turns into yet an­other emer­gency ser­vices doco about chas­ing am­bu­lances. Tonight, in a raid of a pent­house flat, cop­pers find more than they bar­gained for. A man takes a tum­ble on the Tube and paramedics are phys­i­cally at­tacked as they try to treat a per­son on drugs. Could be any­where, re­ally.
