Death in the Air With Kate Winkler Dawson

Apr 18, 2019 | 14:16 GMT

It happened unexpectedly. The whole city was afraid. No one could see. Many could not breathe. And amid the terror of London's Great Smog of 1952, a different, equally sinister drama was underway.

The London Smog killed an estimated 12,000 people. It lasted less than one week. But those who died from the smog were not the only victims in those dark days.

Kate Winkler Dawson's book, Death in the Air, tells parallel stories of the Great Smog. Both left victims struggling to breathe.
