    Re: Listening help

    The turn of the century is said to have been London's finest era in the history of the British Empire. In actuality there was a disparaging gap between the rich and the poor, crime was rampant, and the hearts of the people bled with unruliness.

    The screenwriter or translator didn't know what the word "disparaging" means. It doesn't make sense there.
