A House Through Time
Award-winning social history series A
House Through Time will be back for a third series next year on
Presenter David Olusoga turns
detective in the show as he uses a mix of genealogical records,
documents and expert witnesses to trace the lives of the
occupants of a single house.
The BBC revealed that the search has
already started in Bristol to find the house that will take
centre stage in the third series.
And they say “with the city’s rich
maritime history, connections to the slave trade and
technological heritage” they expect there will be plenty of
drama in the next series.
Commissioning Editor, Simon Young,
said: “This series has swiftly become a treasured part of the
schedule on BBC2. It’s a vitally important returning series for
us, perfectly reflecting our ambition for history programmes
that connect the bigger sweeps of our nation’s story to
individual lives lived all over the country.
“Having visited houses in Liverpool
and Newcastle in the first two series, I’m thrilled that David
will delve into Bristol’s rich history next.”
The new series of A House Through Time
will be four parts. The BBC will announce exact transmission
details nearer the time.
