Britain's Empty Homes

Britain's Empty Homes logoThere are nearly a million properties lying empty in the UK waiting for someone to come along to turn them into homes again. In this brand new series, Jules Hudson reveals the great potential vacant places can offer in terms of budget and lifestyle. We follow the work of the nation's Empty Property Officers whose job it is to get buildings sitting abandoned and neglected back into use as homes again. And we'll see how rescued wrecks have been transformed into beautiful homes again.

Britain's Great War

Britain's Great War logoOpening the World War One commemoration season on the BBC and produced in partnership with the Open University, landmark new documentary series Britain’s Great War, presented by Jeremy Paxman, explores how Britain and the lives of British people were transformed by the Great War. There had never been a war like it. It was the first ‘total war’ and it blew apart the certainties on which British society rested. Focusing on extraordinary personal stories to illuminate often cataclysmic events, each episode charts a different stage of the war: from initial optimism; to frustration; to the exhausted, poignant celebration of victory. It was the first war in British history in which men were conscripted to fight, civilians had their homes bombed, and every family feared a knock on the doo...

Britain's Lost Routes with Griff Rhys Jones

Britain's Lost Routes with Griff Rhys Jones logoIn 1574, Elizabeth I left Windsor for Bristol. It was a jaunt, says the chipper Griff Rhys Jones, that was "part summer holiday, part huge procession, and part rock'n'roll tour to rival the Rolling Stones". Excuse enough for the comedian to be chauffeured in a Rolls-Royce Phantom V as he retraces a journey made back when Britain's "roads were few and paths obscure". It's a show that neatly balances humour and did-you-know etymology (for example: harbingers were officials sent ahead to ensure preparations for the royal arrival were in place).

To reveal the secrets hidden in the landscape, Alan descends a Yorkshire waterfall twice as high as Niagara Falls, climbs one of the highest mountains in Scotland and goes foraging with red squirrels in Formby. He travels back in time to find hippos roaming through Trafalgar Square, an immense forest that spreads from Land's End to John O'Groats, and prehistoric reptiles swimming in Britain's tropical seas.
