Historical documentary on the old docks of London before they were transformed in the 1980s. The London Docklands were one of the most successful ports in the world, but after being partially destroyed by the bombings of World War II, and becoming ill-used by local businesses, the government decided to reinvent the area. This programme takes a look at the docks before their reconstruction, while the area was still a bustling hub of life and work.
