Things to do
REGENT CANAL: Take a walk along Regent's Canal with Footprints of London City Guide, Jane Parker, and get to know the history of the waterway. Its industrial past dates back to a time when the towpaths were inaccessible to the general public. So dirty and dangerous were the shops on the water's edge - unlike the colorful canal boats that moored there today. Angel, £ 12 / £ 9, book in advance, 10.30-12.30
WALKING TOUR: Take a guided walk through the eastern end of the City of London and visit hidden alleys and courtyards, a spooky graveyard, a market where part of Harry Potter was filmed, historic tavernas and more. Learn about the story, including the story of Dick Whittington and a wine bar that survived the Great Fire. City of London (meeting place when booking), £ 10 / £ 5, book in advance, 14.30-17.00 clock (Sponsor)
BACKSTAGE TOURS: Take a behind-the-scenes look at the Barbican Theater and visit behind-the-scenes areas that are usually inaccessible to the public. The backstage tour gives an insight into the functioning of the theater and covers the architecture of the building. Barbican, £ 12.50, book in advance, 5pm
PORN POINT TO POINT: It's point by point, but not the way you know it. The kiddie pastime is in full swing as the dots unite to reveal slightly more provocative imagery. Drink, Shop and Make (King's Cross), £ 5, book in advance, starting 18 O 'clock
EARTH: Several billion tons of earth are moved by humans every year - with shovels, excavators or dynamite. The people who are moving are the subject of the new Austrian documentary Earth, which meets workers from America, Italy and Hungary.

Tube ponders with Barry Heck
Our resident tube lover reports daily on the London Underground.
If he had lived, Henry Moore would have celebrated his 121st birthday today. Moore is best known for his monumental sculptures, examples of which can be found outside King's Cross Station, Millbank, and College Green in Westminster. He also had strong connections to the tube. During the Second World War, Moore made numerous sketches of families who were protected from lightning on subway platforms (above). He has also installed a work of art above a subway station. His first public commission, courtesy of Charles Holden, is West Wind. It is one of the relief sculptures that adorn the walls of Broadway 55 above the St. James's Subway Station. Happy Birthday, sir.
Good thing of the day
