From a beautifully conceived film-poem and an imaginative exploration of the Lower Lea Valley to an uplifting documentary on a London landmark, the collaborations between much-loved electronic indie trio Saint Etienne and filmmaker Paul Kelly (Lawrence of Belgravia) document London ever-changing environment and landscapes to music by the band. Available together on one DVD for the very first time, this loose trilogy is supported by rare and previously unavailable short films.

Finisterre (2003, Paul Kelly and Kieran Evans): is a homage to London featuring a host of well-known voices who've made the capital their own, soundtracked by songs from Saint Etienne album of the same name.

What Have You Done Today Mervyn Day? (2005, Paul Kelly): follows paperboy Mervyn Day on his round, tracing the fascinating hidden history of East London's Lower Lea Valley in the years before it was redeveloped to become the Olympic Park.

Commissioned by the Royal Festival Hall to mark its renovation and reopening This is Tomorrow (2007, Paul Kelly) lovingly records the immense labour, that went into the refurbishment of one of London's most distinguished concert venues
