His search for hidden gems takes him deep underground in Clifton before he meets up with Mercury Prize winning musician Roni Size to discuss the positive changes that have occurred in the Stokes croft and St Paul's area of the city. And what better way to end the walk than with a bit of Hanky Panky in Bristol's first secret Speakeasy?
