00:00:12,488 --> 00:00:14,610
London. My city.

2
00:00:15,911 --> 00:00:18,469
A monstrous place.

3
00:00:18,469 --> 00:00:21,072
Commerce and trade have made it that way,

4
00:00:21,072 --> 00:00:25,153
and filled it's ever expanding
streets with the rural poor...


5
00:00:25,153 --> 00:00:27,593
and the new, urban rich.

6
00:00:29,930 --> 00:00:34,943
Only one thing in the midst of this anarchy
could truly be said to be organized...


7
00:00:35,564 --> 00:00:36,762
Crime.

8
00:00:37,220 --> 00:00:42,603
By the 1750's, London streets
belonged to the armed gangs.


9
00:00:56,733 --> 00:01:01,117
There were a few brave constables,
but they faced a near impossible task.


10
00:01:03,084 --> 00:01:08,230
Hey! Unhand the lady and
piss off back to Clerkenwell.

11
00:01:09,519 --> 00:01:10,921
What are you gonna do about it, huh?

12
00:01:18,018 --> 00:01:20,193
Right then, come on.

13
00:01:27,158 --> 00:01:30,944
But these few brave constables
were simply overwhelmed.


14
00:01:30,944 --> 00:01:32,792
And they needed help.

15
00:01:35,155 --> 00:01:41,089
To this end, I devised a proposal to
Parliament, to remedy this growing evil.


16
00:01:43,335 --> 00:01:46,911
I turned my attention from
my celebrated works of fiction,


17
00:01:47,012 --> 00:01:50,709
and accepted the post of
Magistrate of Westminster.


18
00:01:50,836 --> 00:01:53,797
And with my brother
John, blind since youth,


19
00:01:53,898 --> 00:02:00,998
resolved to create a new organisation that
would bring law and order to the city's streets.


20
00:02:02,365 --> 00:02:05,731
London was in need of a police force.

21
00:02:22,004 --> 00:02:27,175
We had night watchmen and thief-takers,
but they were deeply corrupt.


22
00:02:27,517 --> 00:02:33,762
To create an effective police force I needed
money and I needed sponsors in Parliament.


23
00:02:33,906 --> 00:02:38,256
We hoped to have found such
a patron in Lord Newcastle.


24
00:02:39,547 --> 00:02:43,168
My brother has performed the
most exhaustive calculations

25
00:02:43,168 --> 00:02:49,809
