If Walls Could Talk

Historian Lucy Worsley explores how people have used the rooms in their houses over the centuries. In this four-episode series, she tells the story of British domestic life from the middle ages to the present day through four rooms: the kitchen, the bedroom, the bathroom and the living room. She explores how attitudes and habits have changed in relation to family, privacy, cleanliness, class and technology.
