Writers Rachel Lichtenstein and Tom Chivers delve underneath the streets of London to reveal its lost rivers and hidden geology as they share their research and discoveries of recent subterranean explorations. Tom examines the relationship between our changing environment and the city to reveal a history of climatic shifts and hidden geology under the city streets. With images and soundscapes, Rachel Lichtenstein describes her visit to the Victorian sewers, walking the course of London's largest lost river, the Fleet, with geologists, filmmakers, sewer flushers and medieval historians.

Rachel Lichtenstein is a cross-disciplinary artist and writer whose books include Rodinsky's Room (co-written with Iain Sinclair), On Brick Lane, which was shortlisted for the Ondaatje Prize and most recently Diamond Street: The Hidden World of Hatton Garden.

Tom Chivers is a poet and arts producer whose writing attempts to capture the contemporary city in flux. He is author of the poetry collections How to Build a City and The Terrors. He is currently working on ADRIFT - a Cape Farewell commission.
