"Pea Souper" - The Great Smog of London - 1952
It's 1952 and London looks like the set of an 80s music video.
In what historians will one day call the fifth episode of the CB Wallop Podcast, join Comedians Phil Lucas and Phil Jerrod as they discuss the THE BLACK FOG OF 1952 - the terrible sulphurous cloud of soot and pollution that cloaked London for a good five days causing the deaths of over 4000 people.
But did Londoners bollocks on about it all on Facebook? No.. no they didn't.
