What is A House Through Time?
Popular house history series A House Through Time started in 2018 with a deceptively simple idea – historian David Olusoga traces the history of a single house, uncovering the lives of the people who lived there throughout centuries of British history. Three previous series of A House Through Time have revealed the fascinating histories of houses in Liverpool, Newcastle and Bristol.

What is it about?
The four-episode series of A House Through Time will trace the inhabitants of 5 Grosvenor Mount in the suburb of Headingley, Leeds. David Olusoga will uncover the house’s many links to the city’s history, including the textile industry, W. Nicholson and Sons builders, and the Leeds Mercury newspaper. But this is a timeline equally packed with a huge number of juicy domestic dramas, including love triangles, larceny, childhood abandonment and reversals of fortune.
