I guess like most people my experience of London can be more often than not quite anonymous. Rarely will I walk through a particular part of town and wonder, of all the people I can see, how many are locals, whether they have a relationship to the area or whether they're all just trying to get somewhere else. Since watching BBC2's "Secret History of Our Streets" this has totally changed — if you are in any way remotely interested in London or history it is a must watch. A fascinating and personal insight into six archetypal streets of this city, it'll make you look at the place with fresh eyes.
