A House Through Time

Series 2 Episode 3

Historian David Olusoga tells the story of a single house, a Georgian end-of-terrace property on Ravensworth Terrace, in Newcastle upon Tyne's West End. Starting his journey from around the time the house was completed in 1824, David explores the lives of the owners and inhabitants of the house up to the present day. David draws on city archives and records, looks at wider social changes, and tracks down living descendants to inform his research on the life of the house. He discovers a rise and fall in fortunes over the years, and even encounters the occasional scandal.
