What a fascinating programme. The BBC has done itself proud with this one. It was full of stories about the birth of the move to conserve ancient buildings and landmarks, beautifully illustrated by stills and old film, with contributions from engaging and informative historians.
What a hero was John Lubbock the "MP of loopy causes" who began it all.

Yes, very enjoyable.
For once, the talking heads were those of people I wanted to listen to (Simon Thurley, Jonathan Glancey, Simon Jenkins).
I particularly enjoyed the bit about Lord Curzon and the race to save the Tattershall Castle fireplaces.
It's been a good week on BBC 4.

What an absolutely wonderful series.
A very big thank you to the BBC for another great series.
Myself & all my family have enjoyed following this programme, thoroughly.
I too enjoyed hearing Siân Phillips' beautiful commentary.
We all followed it on BBC Four and would be lost without this excellent channel.
Once again, thank you.
