The super sewer is the largest upgrade to the sewage system for more than 150 years; built 90 metres under London, it’s also the biggest engineering challenge for a generation. In this major new three-part series, The Five Billion Pound Super Sewer puts cameras at the heart of the action, following workers across the capital for the past three years as they race to build the enormous tunnel on time and on budget.

The Five Billion Pound Super Sewer will be broadcast from Tuesday 17th July at 9 pm on BBC Two. Read more about the series on the BBC's programmes pages or find out more about the fascinating history of London's sewage network below.
