IM Watson starts with 1.d4 to help you build your opening repertoire. Basically the London is a set of solid lines where after 1.d4 White quickly develops his dark-squared bishop to f4 and normally bolsters his center with  pawns on c3 and e3 rather than expanding. Although it has the potential for a quick kingside attack, the white forces are generally flexible enough to engage in a battle anywhere on the board. Historically it developed into a system mainly from three variations: 1.d4 d5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Bf4; 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 e6 3.Bf4; 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 g6 3.Bf4.

Great Product Review by TangoFoxtrot33

I haven't thoroughly studied all of the lectures, but the lessons that I have studied are excellent. I like the teacher's approach (logic not rote memory) and his "easy-going" style - not too intense. (Posted on November 20, 2016)

Excellent overview of the London Review by SFire

After viewing these videos twice I started playing the London system in tournament games. Because you end up getting the same kind of structures each time, you really begin to understand the plans quickly. And my opponents often don't know what to do against it. The system really works, I have now beaten opponents with 2150 and 2200 USCF rating with this system (my own rating is 1900).
I use the book Win with the London System to look up move order details, but the basic ideas on how to play this opening I got from these videos.
Highly recommended (Posted on August 24, 2014)
