Made in partnership with English Heritage, a new three-part series begins tonight (Thursday 7th March) at 9pm on BBC Four which follows the movement to protect Britain’s heritage from its early days in the 19th century through to the challenges of today.
The series is called ‘Heritage! The Battle for Britain’s Past’ and complements English Heritage’s year-long programme to mark the centenary of the Ancient Monuments Act of 1913. The Act was a landmark moment for heritage 0 it created many of the powers still used to safeguard the nation’s legacy of historic buildings.
