For centuries it's been the center of so much, the literary scene, the film making scene, the French quarter, the royal quarter, of course the bohemian cafe quarter, and the area where many of the great British bands such as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones started their careers. YouâÂÂll hear stories that include an 8 year old Mozart writing his first symphony to distract himself from the sound of London traffic, drunken poets losing famous manuscripts in pubs, Logie Baird's first public demonstration of a television and much more.
