The Great Fire of London was a catastrophic event for Britain, one of the most devastating fires we have ever experienced. It destroyed almost the entire old city and has become a national memory burnt into our consciousness. 350 years on, we have all heard of the Great Fire… but what do we actually know about what happened?
Now, this exciting, three-part series takes us inside one of the most iconic events in British history – in a way we’ve never seen before. Peeling away the truisms, a team of presenters use 21st century science and new historical evidence to reveal the Great Fire of London as it really happened.
The series mirrors the chronology of the catastrophe across the five days – we chart the initial spark from an oven in the King’s bakery through to how the city was razed to the ground. And explore the resulting refugee crisis and backlash against foreigners that still feels surprisingly relevant today.
