Billingsgate fish market in Poplar has been trading in fish and seafood on it’s present site since 1982 but has operated in various locations since it was first granted a royal charter in 1327. In this programme, Billy Allet, a Billingsgate fish porter since 1959, talks about the market past and present, while fish merchant Rodger Barton talks us through the variety of seafood he has on his stall.
