Brighton

Wednesday 23 August 2006 13:30-14:00 (Radio 4 FM)


Archaeologist Julian Richards explores the hidden history of our towns through the streets and buildings of today.

Once the nation's favourite resort, Julian discovers how a Sussex sea view was scorned until people started bathing for their health; why cocktails of salt water mixed with rum or milk went down well with Londoners; and how the town's two piers - stretching out beyond the confines of land, society and morality - became the vast sexual battleship of the seafront.
