London mythology put together so precisely."
It was a once-in-a-century event and it happened to London on April 26, 1937. The Thames River, swollen from five days of continuous rain, burst its banks and flooded the city. Over 1000 houses were washed out. One in twenty Londoners were left homeless. Property damages mounted into the millions. People's lives were changed and destroyed in the space of a single afternoon. The papers called it "London's worst catastrophe of the century."
In addition to gripping interviews with flood survivors, Lost April contains riveting film footage and radio broadcasts from one of the darkest days in London's history.
