Go behind the scenes of the busiest shopping precinct in Europe.
With access to London Underground, Crossrail, the Met Police and some of the major brands selling their wares on this mile and half long shopping street. This series reveals the highs and lows of what it takes to help 142 million shoppers spend almost £5 billion a year.
We will be 40 meters beneath the Street with Crossrail engineers testing the ventilation system on the brand new £15 billion railway. Backstage at the street’s Dominion Theatre to witness last minute rehearsals for an underwater costume change hours before the opening night of Bat out of Hell. We’ll follow the journey of a trainer from a Cumbrian factory to New Balance’s Oxford Street window, witness life-saving paramedics when the Pride parade brings a million people to the street and we will be in the clouds with John Lewis staff rushing to complete the flagship store’s rooftop garden in time for opening day.
Whether it’s the ultimate fans camping overnight outside the Disney store, the police targeting shoplifters and pickpockets or the Oxford Circus Tube staff battling to handle almost a 1000-passengers a minute, this observational documentary series reveals the people, business and institutions which make Oxford Street the world-famous retail phenomenon it has become.
