London: 2000 Years of History

Sundays at 7.30pm AEDT 

London is one of the largest and most successful cities on Earth, yet 2000 years ago it was an uninhabited swamp. This programme tells the glorious, and sometimes gory,
story of the city’s meteoric rise to power: how it faced daring invasions, catastrophic fires and deadly plague and how it grew from a small Roman trading post, to the capital of the British Empire, and ultimately to the thriving megacity we know today. With special access and brand new research, this series will change the way you see London forever.
