5/5. Donald Macleod and writer Roderick Swanston follow Handel's footsteps through London's historic theatreland. They traverse the West End in search of the theatres in which Handel's operas were performed, from the former King's Theatre in Haymarket, to the former incarnation of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, and a long-vanished third opera house at Lincoln's Inn Fields.
