How did a Roman trading post rise to become the biggest city the world had ever seen, the capital of the biggest empire the world had ever seen? And how did it reinvent itself for a post-imperial age?
Discover the history of the world’s greatest city with DON BROWN, as we take in the Romans (who founded Londinium), the anglo-saxons (who made it their capital), the Normans (who built its castles), through the Tudors and beyond, to the Victorians (who made it huge) and then to the 20th and 21st centuries.
We’ll encounter invasions, wars, plagues, fires and worse; look at the trade, industry and people that made it rich; meet the immigrants – from the rest of the British Isles and around the globe – that made it the most dynamic city in the world.
And we’ll do all of that in just 60 minutes.
