Once again, another good 30 minute BBC radio documentary. This one features the story of the "Beat Hotel" - the Parisian cheap hotel that housed many ex-pat American writers in the late 1950s/early 60s: Ginsberg, Burroughs, Corso, etc. Stories of Dream Machines, cut ups, police murders of Algerians, Buddhism, poetry, and low rent.
