By Lucy Catherine.
It is 1936 and Phyllis Pearsall has had enough of getting lost in LONDON because all the maps are out of date.
So she begins the arduous task of walking 3,000 miles and mapping 23,000 streets, in order to fulfil her dream of producing the first A-Z of LONDON.
With Catherine McCormack, David Thorpe, Phyllida Law and Gavin Muir
