A House Through Time - BBC2.

Tonigh, 9pm, on BBC2, 'A House Through Time', which tracks a house from construction in Liverpool in 1840.

A series of 4 programs, charting the house from new, and the occupants who lived there up until now.

Re: A House Through Time - BBC2.

I have to ask myself. How or why, was this house chosen amongst all the others in Liverpool.

I enjoyed it though.

Steve.

Re: A House Through Time - BBC2.

Bet they did a fair few until they found one with interesting inhabitants!

I wanted to know more about Mr Gillespie who they skirted over.

I will be watching it tho but see it is later at night next week.

I guess they can only go on what they can find out about, Mr Gillespie.

David Olusoga had a nice trip to the USA, for his 'troubles'.

The next episode appears to be more a harrowing story, in part.

Re: A House Through Time - BBC2.

Is that why it is on later?

It's a repeat of part 1, so don't get too excited.

Re: A House Through Time - BBC2.

Part 2 was interesting.

And it only goes to show how important birth certs are, and not relying on Census returns for childrens parentage.

An Alfred Robinson had 2 illegitimate children, to a woman who was cited in his divorce in the 1870's. (The divorce never happened, for reasons unknown, even though the wifes case was a good one).
The mother of the children died soon after childbirth, so Alfred Robinson took the children into his marital home, and lived as a family with his wife in the cencus.

Re: A House Through Time - BBC2.

Forgot all about it and watched it on catch up.

Yep easy to miss that unless you check out the gro.gov website for every birth to make sure the mother's maiden name is what you think it is. Wonder how often it happened.

Re: A House Through Time - BBC2.

Well, the series has ended. The present owner of the house had a pleasant surprise with it's history.

I quite enjoyed it, and hope there are further programs to follow.

Steve.
