New Series - A House through Time
« on: Saturday 30 December 17 16:27 GMT (UK) »
Not sure if this has been highlighted, but I see there is a new series starting on Thursday 4 January at 9.00pm on BBC2 called A House through Time, following the history of a house and its occupants

I'd noted that, must try to set it to record. Much easier than trying to remember to watch it!
Threlfall (Southport), Isherwood (lancs & Canada), Newbould + Topliss(Derby), Keating & Cummins (Ireland + lancs), Fisher, Strong& Casson (all Cumberland) & Downie & Bowie, Linlithgow area Scotland . Also interested in Leigh& Burrows,(Lancashire) Griffiths (Shropshire & lancs), Leaver (Lancs/Yorks) & Anderson(Cumberland and very elusive)

Thanks Chris for posting this, I will set it to record.

Here is a link to the details of the series.
http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/liverpool-house-star-new-tv-14016228

For anyone who may have an interest in the house, the address is 62 Falkner Street, Liverpool, the above link says it was previously numbered No. 58 before the building of more houses.  However, I have looked at the census and it was actually No. 28 (maybe a typo on the above link).

Added:  Strangely, in 1841 it is numbered 58 when Richard Glenton lived there, but they state the next residents were James and Ann Orr - they were at No. 28 in 1851/61  :-\  Will have to watch to find out.
Robbins - Wolverhampton.
Spooner - Monmouthshire & Wolverhampton.
Warner & Loundes - Dudley/Smethwick.
Dod(g)son - Heysham/Liverpool/Wolverhampton

That looks good. Will definitely be watching.

Years ago there was a TV show about a tenement flat around the corner from me in Glasgow's West End and it was really interesting to see how social conditions and conventions had changed over time.

And wasn't there a daytime series on British telly a few years back called House History or House Detectives?

Just noticed that A House Through Time is repeated on Saturday at 7.15pm. It does sound as though it will be really interesting

Either I'm suffering from a bad case of deja vu, or there's been a program exactly like this before. 4-5 years ago, I think.

A single house, history of the occupants, and the house re-dressed in period style for each episode.

Anyone else remember it (or suffer from the same deja vu) ?

You're right - that fits my description.

But that's a much more recent series than the one I'm trying to remember, which was more general social history, and went back further (to around 1800, IIRC) :)
