I Never Knew That About Britain
This eight-part series, based on the best-selling series of books by Christopher Winn, is hosted by Paul Martin with Steve Mould and Suzannah Lipscomb.
It’s a fun, light-hearted and fast-paced look at incredible stories from British history.
Driving her Union Jag across the country from Dolaucothi to Coventry, Newark, London, Bristol and Fishguard, Suzannah explores why we drive on the left, where telephone boxes go to die, looking for gold in Wales, the birth of the stock exchange, and more…
She learns to joust, tastes terrible seventeenth-century-style coffee, and discovers that America was probably named not after Amerigo Vespucci, but after an Englishman.
