Examine the murky histories of London, New York and Paris when they were filthy cities.
Exploring our murky past
Do you have to dodge the contents of bedpans or step over rotting corpses on your way to work? Well, you may have had to if you'd lived in London, New York or Paris when they were filthy cities. Dan Snow presents this immersive series, which brings these cities' stinking histories vividly to life. Taking the travelogue in a whole new direction - with extraordinary, hands-on demos and stunts - it excavates the murky past in gruesome detail during defining periods in history. You'll find out how each of these modern capitals was forged in the muck of the past, emerging from 'filthy cities' into three of the world's model metropolises.
