London: 2000 Years of History

Also aired as Capital – The Story of London

(Channel 5, 2019)

In this four-part series for Channel 5, presenters Suzannah Lipscomb, Dan Jones, and Rob Bell tell 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 the city forever.
