Summary
"Intrepid Tony Robinson works directly in harm's way as a bridge builder, legger, soap boiler, glass blower, knocker upper, bone cleaner, presser, matchmaker and at the terrible job children faced down the mines. High above the Avon, Tony relives the terrors of the workers who built Brunel's celebrated suspension bridge. Then he salutes the leggers - men whose task it was to drag the barges through the tunnels on the 5,000 miles of canals that kept freight moving. Next he looks at the work done in potteries including the smelly task of removing rotting meat from dead cattle to make fine bone china - and then there is the worst job of all - that of the children who spent up to 12 hours a day down the coal mine."--website
