Greenlit: Britain’s Secret Homes, ITV
Britain’s Secret Homes (4 x 60′) – A brand new series revealing the remarkable stories behind the UK’s most secret and surprising homes; it will be made in partnership with English Heritage, and will include contributions from Historic Scotland, Cadw – the Welsh Government’s historic environment service in Wales, and the Northern Ireland Environment Agency. Together, they have trawled the country to find the 50 most intriguing homes in the UK. Some are still inhabited. Many are unknown to the public. But all these extraordinary places have borne witness to key moments in our nation’s history. The order will be determined by factors such as each home’s national importance, cultural significance, historical value and beauty.
An eclectic range of well-known people and experts will join Michael Buerk and Bettany Hughes to investigate the UK’s best kept secret homes, and the stories will be brought to life using archive, cutting edge CGI and dramatic reconstruction. From country manor houses to unassuming terraced two-up two-downs, these homes’ stories will deliver eye-opening accounts of political intrigue, conspiracy, invention, romance and heroism that make the very fabric of British history.
