One Foot in the Past

Show Summary

One Foot in the Past is a television show that first aired on BBC in the late 1990s. It surveys the history of Britain, singling out some of the most influential people and most significant events. Kirsty Wark takes the lead in presenting shows that span subjects like The Beatles, The Festival of Britain, and the ruins found in various sites around the country. Viewers get to tour places like the Raj, the House of Windsor, the Palace of the Apes, and The Georgian City. Britain's heritage is a rich tapestry of economic expansion, back room deals, noble aspirations, and dirty pool. There were brilliant poets and politicians that made the country great, and a choice selection of scoundrels and charlatans that even today make the country's history more colorful. One Foot in the Past explores it all, defining the many influences and voices that make the country and the people what they are today.
