Summary
Odorless, hygienic, and sanitized-although that's how most of the western world's city sewer systems would be described today, it wasn't always so. Using London as an example, this program looks at the history of the city and its sewage, and the development and effect on cities of indoor bathrooms and toilets and the sewers built to cope with them. Once considered a wonder cure which made cities cleaner and healthier, the convenience of the modern toilet may yet prove dangerous
