We commence a day exploring the secret, hidden London beneath our feet with Anthony Asquith’s 1928 silent gem Underground, a portrait of 1920s working-class London with its pubs, lodging houses and, of course, the Underground itself.

This revelatory tale of jealousy, murder and a fatally flawed love triangle culminates in a thrilling chase on the tube lines. The film is crowned with a soundtrack featuring Neil Brand’s scintillating jazz score, performed by the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
