London 1666


Lauren Laverne hosts a landmark event to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire in which a 100-metre long representation of the skyline of 17th-century London floating on the Thames is set ablaze in a dramatic retelling of the circumstance of September 1666. Alongside the action from the burning sculpture, there are interviews with key individuals reflecting on the process of making such an unprecedented piece of art.
