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 town.  Alice visits historic sites and meets local historians to understand how each town was shaped by the dominant forces of the age.   Aerial archaeologist Ben Robinson takes to the skies to see how the layout of each town reflects a historical era to this day and cutting edge CGI allows Alice to bring long lost monuments back to life.  The first two series performed well above slot average and a third series starts shooting in the Spring of 2020
