Summary
"With the rise of industry came the rise of the cities. In this program, host Dan Cruickshank scours London to examine how the mechanisms of industrialization generated urban life as people know it today. Mass production enabled a growing swathe of society to enjoy high-quality products and created a new and instantly recognizable world: the modern home. Chemistry also stoked the fires of consumer demand, producing vibrant colors that dictated the clothing and decorating fashions of the day. And the invention of streetlights made possible one of the city-dweller's favorite pastimes: shopping."--Container
