This series explores the history and architecture of seven great cities in Britain and Ireland, France and the United States in the Victorian age. We see how they adapted and responded to the buildings and environment that they inherited, met the challenges of hectic urban growth and profound social problems, and created much remarkable new architecture in the process. Series organised by Steven Brindle.
