Review

It's the busiest street in Europe, bustling with shoppers, tourists and traffic. But most visitors don't notice all the people who work on Oxford Street. There are police officers tackling pickpockets, scammers and illegally parked rickshaw drivers; department store staff organising PR events to make shopping more of an “experience”; photographers trying to pap passing celebrities; builders working hundreds of feet up erecting scaffolding on Centrepoint; plus street cleaners, paramedics and public transport teams.

Even if you don't live in the capital or aren't one of Oxford Street's 200 million annual visitors, this observational series is fascinating to watch.

Summary

Undercover police set out to catch shoplifters red-handed, the John Lewis staff celebrate Burns Night and the Dominion Theatre gets ready for the opening of The Lord of the Dance.
