“You really need to come down here – I’m in absolute awe of the place. It’s truly inspirational.” Stop, I’m blushing! That’s not a bad final piece to camera from the presenter Antonio Castaldo, when Grow Heathrow featured on the cutting edge video channel Catch 21.
Learn and take a virtual tour of Grow Heathrow on a new website which has been set up by student journalist Gengmiao Guo who was following Transition Heathrow round for a few weeks in July.
The action-packed and inspirational direct action documentary Just Do It – a tale of modern-day outlaws joins the digital world!

Here’s another date for your diary. On Thursday 7th June, as the next installment of Grow Heathrow’s first Thursday of the month off-grid film club, we will be showing the Transition Network’s brand new film In Transition 2.0
Filmmaker Emma Goude will be making the journey up here and will be taking questions after the film. We are inviting every Transition Town group across London and from the Thames Valley region to come and watch it with us so it should be a packed greenhouse.
Watch the trailer here and don’t miss out on this free film screening, starting at 8.30pm. Crash space is available if requested.
In Transition 2.0 is the new film from Transition Network, capturing inspiring stories of Transition initiatives around the world, responding to uncertain times with creativity, solutions and ‘engaged optimism’.
Here’s our latest campaign video made by Dean Puckett, who is also the filmmaker of new film The Crisis of Civilization. Dean was with us on the 1st March 2010 when Grow Heathrow was first occupied and some of the footage from that day, not seen ever before, is included in this video. Have a watch.
This brings back some warm memories. This five minute film, produced by the Media Trust for UK-based charity the Sheila McKechnie Foundation (SMK), aims to inspire people to get involved in campaigning.
Every day, ordinary people campaign to right wrongs. Anyone can campaign.
A fine example of people Power against economic polluting giants. The video includes old footage of Plane Stupid, NOTRAG, HACAN, Transition Heathrow and all who organised the ceilidh (2nd half of the video).
SMK is the only registered charity in the UK dedicated to connecting, informing and supporting campaigners. For more information visit smk.org.uk.

This was the moment our barrister revealed the judges announcement to the crowd that was gathered outside court. Let the celebrations commence!
A great political rap by Reflection Eternal called Ballad Of The Black Gold. Make sure you listen out for all the lyrics.
