Ever wondered about the monument you pass every day? Are you curious about a place name or discovered a hidden passageway in your house? Ever thought where it all might lead? Whether you’ve a mystery of your own or hit a dead end after years of your own local historical investigating, ‘History’s Mysteries’ may provide the answer you’ve been looking for.
Each programme follows the story of a historical mystery, revealing our national past buried in the local present, the small detail shown in the wider context, fastidiously sorting local fact from fiction. Our experienced team of sleuths - Jonathan Foyle, historian of architecture, art and culture; Miranda Krestovnikoff, a specialist in natural history; and Nick Barratt, a historian and archivist - investigate when, where and why an event occurred.
Landscape Mysteries takes the viewer around the British Isles on a fascinating quest to understand a little better the landscapes we live in. Landscapes needn’t just “be there”, the place we live or visit or simply taken for granted. Look carefully, ask around and do some “digging” and it begins to yield up clues to its long and magical history.
Join landscape enthusiast Aubry Manning in a search for clues which reveal their influences on our past, present and future.
