Step back in time and discover the sights, sounds and smells of London through the ages in this enthralling journey into the capital's rich, teeming and occasionally hazardous past.

Let time traveller Dr Matthew Green be your guide to six extraordinary periods in London's history - the age of Shakespeare, medieval city life, the plague, coffee houses, the reign of Victoria and the post-Blitz recovery.

You'll meet pornographers and traitors, actors and apothecaries, the mad, bad and dangerous to know, all desperate to show you the thrilling and vibrant history of the world's liveliest city.
