London Calling

“A bomb has its limitations. It can only destroy buildings and kill people. It cannot kill the unconquerable spirit and courage of the people of London.” – London Can Take It! (1940)

An unrivalled guide to the capital for Londoners and visitors alike, London Calling is a major film and television collection exploring the city past and present. Here are the icons, the hidden corners, the familiar neighbourhoods. See a fantasy London in The Fugitive Futurist (1924); a vanished London in Brief City (1952), or London re-imagined in Borderline (2005). From Ealing comedies to soap opera, this is a London that’s part history, part reality, part myth.
