In Exploring the Mysteries of the City of London (46 mins), Stephen Fry is prompted to delve into the history of London after being honoured with the Freedom of the City and so takes us on a tour of London the likes of which you've never seen. Join him as he explores the Square Mile and takes us on behind-the-scenes visits to Tower Bridge, the trading floor at the London Metal Exchange, the Bank of England, the Old Bailey and remnants of Newgate Prison, a Roman bath house below a modern office block, Lloyd's of London and the City Livery Company. If that's not enough for you, he also introduces us to Beadles without the Guildhall, the Lord Mayor, banker Lord Levine, skyscraper window washers, bee keepers and Doris McGovern - wait till you meet Doris. She's a corker.
This is good stuff! Watch it here.
