Filthy Cities

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's series brings to life the murky histories of these great cities, taking the travelogue in a new direction as he excavates their dirty pasts in gruesome detail during defining periods in history. Using state-of -the- art CGI, he goes back in time to medieval London, revolutionary Paris and 19th-century New York. What he reveals is that the story of our epic battle against filth through the ages is also the story of the birth of the modern metropolis.
