Episode Summary

TT Special 6 Liverpool, Merseyside

The Lost Dock Of Liverpool

As the new European Capital of Culture rockets toward a new future, Tony and the team are given access to the largest dig in the programme's history as they scour the 42-acre site of the Paradise project in Liverpool to unearth its secrets. Interestingly, they discover that a similar state of redevelopment existed 300 years ago as the small seven-street town on a muddy pool was transformed from an industrial backwater into a world-port catapulting itself onto the international trading stage. Whilst excavating within the new buildings sites around the Pier Head, the team takes a look at the city's maritime history. Reinvention and regeneration have created a mammoth building site, the trenches of which become the team's playground for unearthing clues to Liverpool's past.
