Contents

Two programmes comparing the East End of London and its effects on a boy in 1896 and a boy in more modern times. The first episode is dramatised, based on Arthur Morrison's novel A Child of the Jago, using contemporary photographs and reenactments to portray the East End at the turn of the 20th Century.

The second episode is about the pop star David Essex, who grew up in the same area several decades later (and also presented the first episode). He talks about being an East End boy and his reaction to the environment.
