Inside the National Trust

October 6, 2013


A new series began today on ITV called Inside the National Trust. The documentary series showcases six very diverse places, from the wildlife on the Farne Islands and the Lake District, to Georgian life at Wordsworth House, an insight into the Victorians at Cragside, life on a working estate at Wimpole and introduces the Strickland family who have lived at Sizergh in Cumbria for 700 years.

In each episode, broadcast journalist Michael Buerk will rediscover some of Britain’s best loved landscapes, uncover hidden secrets and meet the people behind the scenes of the National Trust, including members of staff and volunteers here at Cragside.  He will be trying his hand at new skills including; cleaning and conservation in the house, tree felling/inspecting, Victorian cooking and carpet bedding amongst other things.

The programme airs each Sunday at 12.25pm for ten weeks before Christmas and a further 10 weeks after. I hope you can catch it! Here is a sneak preview video to give you an idea of the show:
