doc­u­men­tary / 8.00pm / C5

at 2.00am on 2 Septem­ber, 1666, the worst fire Bri­tain has ever seen swept through London. It raged for four days, caus­ing what would in to­day’s money be £37 bil­lion worth of dam­age. This three-part doc­u­men­tary of­fers an hour-by-hour ac­count of the fire, as seen through the eyes of Lon­don­ers who wit­nessed it. Dan Jones, Suzan­nah Lip­scomb and Rob Bell bring vividly to life the ex­tent of the dev­as­ta­tion and shed new light on what hap­pened. Con­tin­ues to­mor­row.
