Secrets of Underground London. How many secrets are still unknown?

On the surface, London is a buzzing, modern metropolis–but underneath lies a hidden world, all but forgotten by the millions of people above. From ancient caves and preserved Roman remains to mysterious rivers and plague pits, Secrets of Underground London (PBS Distribution) uncovers 2,000 years of subterranean history.
The special unearths historical locations such as the London Silver Vaults beneath Chancery Lane and Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s bunkers – where he conducted his strategic plan to win the war–directly under Westminster. Also revealed, among others, are the derelict elevators and platforms of Aldwych Tube Station, which not only provided citizens shelter during the WWII Blitz but housed the British Museum’s priceless treasures in secret tunnels.
“As people go about their everyday lives, untold treasures of history and mystery lie hidden under the city of London,” said Gareth Sacala, director at Pioneer Productions. “In never-before-seen footage, we take viewers below the surface to places that demonstrate the ingenuity and resiliency of the British throughout history.”
