Dateline: London Cabbies
London Cabbies
Season 2021  |  Episode 3  |  SBS  |  March 30, 2021

The coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic is crippling London. The NHS is buckling under the sick and the dead, the city's famous pubs and West End shows are closed, and the usually bustling streets deserted as people work from home. Only taxi drivers can't work from home, and there's no work for them on the streets. We investigate how the city's black cab drivers are surviving and adapting, with some delivering food instead of passengers, but many are destined for the black cab graveyard.
