The world is in the grip of the Great Depression but in amongst all the misery of unemployment and economic hardship there is a shining light. London is booming with a boost in house building which doubles the size of the city, creating the metropolis we know today.
It almost becomes a nation within a nation.
Using rare archive footage this film tells the story of how this happened against the backdrop of a turbulent and fascinating decade.
