Historian and broadcaster Dan Cruickshank goes off the beaten track to visit some of his favourite, and largely little-known, haunts.
Historian and broadcaster, Dan Cruickshank, goes off the beaten track and takes us to some of his favourite - and largely undiscovered - haunts.
Dan visits Clerkenwell with its secret and underground history in the company of London biographer, Peter Ackroyd. He takes us to Grub Street - where we hear about the beginnings of the tabloid press in the early 17th century. And in Chinatown, he peers behind the shelves of a Cantonese supermarket to reveal an amazing tale of 18th century debate and debauchery.
Producer: Adele Armstrong.
