Grey Shorts and Sandals

Martin Jarvis and Christopher Matthew return to their schooldays and where they grew up in Croydon and Surrey. From 2013.

Close friends Martin Jarvis and Christopher Matthew venture back to their schooldays and set forth on a journey of discovery and re-discovery.

Together they return - both geographically and through their memories and anecdotes - to the crowded cul-de-sac in south London where Martin Jarvis grew up, and to sleepy Merle Common in Surrey where a young Christopher Matthew would have been seen roaming the countryside.

Producer: Paul Kobrak
