All seven episodes of the Open University series looking at Britain's changing attitude towards its own history. Combining social history, personal testimonies and archive footage, the series introduces the men and women who have campaigned to save our heritage and asks how economic realities conflict with sentiment, how heritage organisations have worked with communities, how the demands of real life tally with the purist visions of academic types, and how Britain, in a radical period of post-war change, has decided what to keep and what to lose.
