[introduction to each episode]
Dr Jonathan Foyle:
Throughout this series I'll be scaling our most iconic and best-loved structures, from the Normans to the present day. I'll be revealing the buildings' secrets and telling the story of how British architecture and construction developed over a thousand years.

This is a quirky and unusual take on British architectural history by climbing the exteriors and in some cases interiors of Durham Cathedral, Lincoln Cathedral, Caernarfon Castle, New College, Oxford, Layer Marney Tower, Burghley House, St Paul's Cathedral, Blenheim Palace, Clifton Suspension Bridge, St Pancras Railway Station and Midland Hotel, Glasgow School of Art, Royal Liver Building, Coventry Cathedral, Lloyd's Building, and Imperial War Museum North.
It's a very close-up view of building design, construction and materials.
And there are much, much worse cultural documentaries and hosts out there with MUCH higher ratings! (See anything with the truly ghastly Dan Cruikshank, for example.)
