Dr Xand Van Tulleken and Raksha Dave investigate the smog that affected London in 1952, which is one of the deadliest environmental disasters ever recorded and one of the world's worst peacetime catastrophes.

Edinburgh here in Scotland was also known as "Auld Reekie" (Old Smelly) due to the smog that was constantly around.
