The Ogiers, the Courtaulds and the Le Keux, families that once dominated the textile industry. Hear about the Huguenots who were baptized, married and were buried at Christ Church, the rich silk merchants who lived in elegant houses and the life of the journeymen who spent every working hour weaving Spitalfields silk now to be found in museums around the world.
