Greenlit: Scaling Britain, BBC2

Scaling Britain (15×30′) A new series celebrating the history of architecture and engineering in Britain. In each episode, presenter Dr Jonathan Foyle – an expert and broadcaster in architectural history – will climb the exterior of an iconic structure as he reveals its design, construction and role in the history of British architecture and engineering. Combining engineering, architecture and history, Scaling Britain uses urban climbing techniques to reveal the history of architecture and engineering in Britain – both inside and out of the building. The series will take viewers on a historical journey from early examples of architecture through to cutting-edge contemporary illustrations. Each day, the programme looks at a different iconic building from St Paul’s Cathedral to the brand-new Imperial War Museum North in Manchester. Each structure – bridge, church, palace or castle – will illustrate different breakthrough moments, challenges and firsts in British engineering and architecture.
