Architectural historian Alec Clifton-Taylor OBE presents all three series of the popular documentary programmes, which ran between 1977-1984. Guiding viewers through 'the pattern of English building', Clifton-Taylor examines each town s grand public buildings, manor houses and family homes, examining how each town evolved in harmony with the local landscape with an appropriate choice of natural building materials. 'These programmes are some of the best made on architecture, buildings and places' Guardian The first series, first broadcast on BBC Two in 1977, sees him visit Chichester (West Sussex), Richmond (Yorkshire), Tewkesbury (Gloucestershire), Stamford (Lincolnshire), Totnes (Devon) and Ludlow (Shropshire). In the second series, first broadcast on BBC Two in 1981, Clifton-Taylor takes in Warwick (Warwickshire), Berwick-upon-Tweed (Northumberland), Saffron Walden (Essex), Lewes (East Sussex), Bradford-on-Avon (Wiltshire) and Beverley (East Riding). In the final series, first broadcast in 1984, he visits Cirencester (Gloucestershire), Whitby (North Yorkshire), Bury St Edmunds (Suffolk), Devizes (Devon), Sandwich (Kent) and Durham (North East). Forty years on, the series now serves as a fascinating historical snapshot of the enduring character of each town over many centuries.
