THURSDAY Dan Cruickshank: At Home with the British BBC Four, 9pm They say that an Englishman's home is his castle, and you can bet that the Scots, Welsh and Northern Irish feel the same way too. But what exactly are these homes like, and what has inspired their architecture over the ages? The historian aims to find out during this new, threepart series. He begins by taking a trip into the picturesque Warwickshire countryside during a visit to the village of Stoneleigh, which has barely changed in 500 years, its cottages perfectly preserved. Here he charts the cottage's transformation from humble hovel to modern dream home.
