Episode 3 of 3 of our bizarre Trafalgar Square saga.

Intro and recap:
What do you get if you mix a JCB, a monk, and a vampire? Answer: an hour’s worth of 4th Plinth material. We think an explanation is in order…

Location: Trafalgar Square London, UK
Date: 21st August 2009, 9am
Problem: Three of four plinths in Trafalgar Square have large statues devoted to the great and good of Britain’s past. The fourth has always been empty.
Solution: Artist Anthony Gormely dreams up the idea of letting anyone fill the vacant spot for an hour. One hundred days long, this experiment in free expression, means 2400 people get to expose their talents (and some exposed more than the organisers bargained for!), and they can do almost anything.
