This hard-hitting documentary, presented by environmentalist George Monbiot, investigates the impacts of pollution on British rivers. In 60 action-packed minutes, this fascinating and disturbing investigative documentary attempts to find out who is polluting our rivers and why we’re not stopping them.

“Our rivers should be beautiful, complex ecosystems… But on our watch, they’ve become open sewers, poisoned by sewage and farm slurry. They’re dying before our eyes.”

This Screening is followed by a talk on the state of London’s rivers by London Waterkeeper, Theo Thomas. Why not come early, grab a drink at the Riverside Bar and take a look at our art installation, Confluence.


Twelve winning entries will be chosen for our 2025 Cody Dock Calendar, and will be featured in our annual exhibition.

The ‘Cody Dock Tidal Lea Ecology Report’ is the result of thousands of environmental volunteer hours; it illustrates the remarkable levels of biodiversity we have found in and around the Tidal Lea, a once heavily industrialised river, then forgotten for generations. The report will be used as a resource to ensure the conservation of the local environment and we will build on the work we’ve done so far to help everyone have a stake in the ecology of the River Lea. Read more >
