Each episode is presented from a different English Heritage property, with Michael Buerk and Bettany Hughes filmed against the backdrops of Wrest Park in Bedfordshire, Chiswick House and Gardens in South West London, Down House, LCharles Darwin's home in Kent, Dover Castle, and Audley End House in Essex.

The series which has been produced by Potato Productions, starts at 9pm on 7 June.
