Britain's Most Historic Towns


In each episode, Professor Alice Roberts studies a key period in British history by telling the story of a single historic town.  Alice visits historic sites and meets local historians to understand how each town was shaped by the dominant forces of the age whilst aerial archaeologist Ben Robinson takes to the skies to see how the layout of each town reflects a historical era to this day.  Cutting edge CGI allows Alice to bring long lost monuments back to life and at the climax of each programme, reveal the entire historic town in all its former glory.
