The department store that this ob-doc gets its name from is a fixture of London’s Oxford Circus; a 130-year-old retail landmark. But in today’s world, even the oldest, most venerable brands are vulnerable to the winds of change, and the whims of taste. Produced by Rize Films for Channel 4, this program gives an unprecedented look into one of London’s best-loved shops, as its staff gears up for a “make or break” Christmas shopping season. Like the BBC’s Inside Claridges, another UK hit from the past year, Liberty of London provides a compelling snapshot of the faces behind the place.
