Synopsis

'Judah grabs hold of London and shakes out its secrets' The Economist

This is London in the eyes of its beggars, bankers, coppers, gangsters, carers, witch-doctors and sex workers.

This is London in the voices of Arabs, Afghans, Nigerians, Poles, Romanians and Russians.

This is London as you've never seen it before.

'An eye-opening investigation into the hidden immigrant life of the city' Sunday Times
