It's a dirty job - but somebody's got to do it. It's 1785 and Jean-Baptiste is raring to go: his first big project is to clear out the oldest cemetery in Paris. Overflowing burial pits are creating a health hazard and a palpable stink around Les Halles. The young engineer's project is a nifty metaphor for the much more momentous clear-out that'll soon shake France to its core. Not for the squeamish, it's grisly, gripping - et magnifique!
