Deserted streets. Public transport carrying a fraction of its usual passenger payload. Theatreland a wasteland. The daily toll of death and suffering.
This is not a fictional disaster movie, but the current reality in London and for much of the world as a result of the Covid-19 crisis. Presenter Adrian Lacey speaks to FT science columnist Anjana Ahuja about how she spotted the potential significance of the coronavirus which causes Covid-19.
Adrian also shares his reflections on these strange times, finding a parallel in a Wordsworth poem. Perfect lockdown (or post-lockdown) listening.
