Traditional depictions of London at night have imagined a lawless orgy of depravity and pestilence. But is Britain's capital after dark now as bland and unthreatening as an evening in any new provincial town? Sukhdev Sandhu journeys across the city to find out whether the London night really has been rendered insipid by street lighting and CCTV. Night Haunts seeks to reclaim the mystery and romance of the city-to revitalize the great myth of London for a new century.
