Local history adviser on BBC’s Antique Roadshow

I helped the director and researcher of BBC’s Antique Roadshow with their research into the history of Clissold Park as part of the filming of three episodes there, which is taking place on July 10th. The first of three episodes filmed in the park was aired on October 9th. The other two episodes will be aired in 2023.

Having become aware in 2016 of the vast archive of the Clissold Park Preservation Committee, which campaigned to save the park from the development in the 1880s, I’ve researched the story of the campaign extensively and created a website for it. Here’s 50min talk I gave about that remarkable story. I’m very pleased the story of campaign will get a mention in one of the episodes.
