  1. Interesting vid, but I couldn't help noticing the mistake at 41:36 (I used to volunteer at this place). Work on the Thames Tunnel, the first under a navigable river anywhere in the world, started in 1825, not 1855. Might seem like I'm being picky but it was an incredible and 'groundbreaking' feat of engineering, known as The Eighth Wonder of the World when it opened. Also, building a tunnel woulda been kinda tricky for Marc Brunel in 1855 as he'd been dead for 6 years, unless… oh God – they buried him ALIVE!!!

  2. 38:40 "what kind of people are buried here?"…..Dead ones!

  3. Great documentary. Just goes to show what genius was displayed by the Victorians. Sensible, well thought out, long lasting solutions to almost every possible civil engineering problem imaginable and which were of benefit to the whole of the population rather than just the rich few. Makes me proud to be an Englishman.

    The higher ups have been digging their ant holes in the ground to hide from the chaos for many centuries if not many thousands of years

  7. What I haven;t seen mentioned here is the custom of throwing people into prison for debts owed to the government. If you were behind in your taxes they would throw you into what they called debters prison. Deep dungons under the city where you where kept until your back taxes where paid.
