A talk about the people that lived in the Old Nichol - in fact, fiction and myth. Police would not patrol there, even in daylight. No stranger would chance their arm there. It was a nest of cosh-carriers and prostitutes. The Old Nichol in Central East London has had a terrible press over the past 150 years or so. But did it deserve it?

Based on her book of the same name, historian Sarah Wise has pieced together a much more complex picture of life in the slum. And in the process, the Nichol legend dies.
