Horrible Histories: The Grisly Great Fire of London

A special episode of the historical sketch show. On the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London, Horrible Histories looks at the disaster and the events that surrounded it. On the night of September 2, a spark from a baker's oven in Pudding Lane ignited a fire which roared through the tightly packed streets of London, tearing up the timber-framed houses and destroying up to a third of the city. Horrible Histories explores London and Britain before the fire, full of plague and party in the raucous Restoration atmosphere personified by King Charles II.
