Oscar Wilde

The world's first modern comedian – 'Work is the curse of the drinking classes', 'Oh really if the poor can't set us a good example, what on earth is the use of them?'
In the 1890s Oscar Wilde, playwright, dandy and wit, was the social lion of London. By 1895 it had come crashing down, as Oscar morphed into the celebrity victim of a family row. We visit Oscar's West End haunts and hear about the destruction of the most brilliant man in London.
