The series is called "Hidden Histories: Britain's oldest family businesses."

The first episode relates to the family of RJ Balson & Son, butchers in Bridport, Dorset.

The second episode relates to the family of Toye & Co, designers and craftsmen.

I have not been able to find out which business will be featured in the third episode.

I kinda liked this show. What an extraordinary history of three of Britain's longest-running family businesses!
