London - Level 1

London - Level 1

London is Europe's largest city, filled with world-famous landmarks and a thousand-year-old history. This program goes beyond the much-recognized sites of Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, the River Thames, Big Ben, Baker Street, Piccadilly Circus, and the Tower of London, and offers viewers the chance to discover the city's hidden charms. London we see is maze of a city with no right angles, no plan, and no center; built into the countryside and home to numerous green spaces like St. James Park, Green Park, and Hyde Park. It is a patchwork of neighborhoods, such as "happening" Hoxton, Soho, and the formerly industrial East End, now the headquarters of insular Bohemia. Also we learn that London has a split personality. By day it clings to its deep-rooted traditions; by night it is the undisputed trend capital of Europe, where every night 60,000 tickets are sold for concerts, plays, and other cultural attractions, and every weekend more than 500,000 young people head out to clubs in wildly eccentric get-ups. 05/08DE IJSCA 30 min.
