Join our host Tony Robinson as he guides us through the workings of the Thames. It must keep rolling on through the night, as Ray Davies suggests, but what does it take to keep this ‘dirty old river’ serving the London population?

Tony explores Britain’s busiest river and meets the people that work on it all night. Tony’s on the West London stretch of the Thames, and here he discovers how night shift workers contend with the river’s tides. He joins the fire service based at Lambeth.
