The Great Fire: In Real Time
Available on MagellanTV Documentaries
Historians Dan Jones and Suzannah Lipscomb team up with engineer Rob Bell to tell the story of the Great Fire of London as it happened in real time. Over 350 years after the fact, `The Great Fire' explores exactly what went down, hour by hour, street by street as the fire spread and destroyed almost every building within London's city walls. From the spark that set everything off at a bakers near Pudding Lane, to the warehouses by the Thames, to the blazing inferno that engulfed the entire city, the hosts present both old and new evidence to document the tragedy that caused £37 billion worth of property damage.
