Plot Synopsis

Using CGI to visualize the streets, the people and their jobs, host Don Wildman travels back in time to examine what life was like in the dirtiest cities during their harshest times. Wildman visits 14th-century London, where people wore wooden platforms designed to help them rise above the disgusting mess underfoot. Then he travels to 19th-century Manhattan, where immigrants left the persecution, poverty and famine in Europe only to find New York was even worse than what they left behind.
