Buildings That Shaped Britain

HISTORY CHANNEL – Monday 7 March, 8.30pm

BUILDINGS THAT SHAPED BRITAIN chronologically profiles the most significant evolutions in British architecture and the relationship this architectural history has had on the cultural, social and political development of Britain from the dark ages to the 21st century. Dr Simon Thurley, Chief Executive of English Heritage, presents a compelling narrative of human ingenuity, and shows how, over the last thousand years, Britain has developed its own distinctive architecture – and what this tells us about who we are today.
