In this programme,he tells the story of Paris in 1928 - a city that attracted men and women dreaming of a better world after the First World War: the year when the Surrealists Magritte, Dali and Bunuel brought their bizarre new vision to the people, when émigré writers and musicians such as Ernest Hemingway and George Gershwin came looking for inspiration, where black musicians and dancers like Josephine Baker found adulation, Cole Porter took time off from partying to write Let’s Do It… and radical architect Le Corbusier planned a modernist utopia that involved pulling down much of Paris itself.
