A House Through Time (R) (T)

David Olusoga continues to chart British history through the successive inhabitants of a terraced house in Liverpool, focusing on the 1850s to the 1890s. David uncovers the stories of a widow who turned the dwelling into a boarding house, and an ambitious Jewish immigrant struggling to stay afloat in the midst of a financial crisis. He also traces the story of a seemingly successful couple for whom that house was the backdrop to a family drama involving violence and infidelity and reveals how an unidentified body dragged from the Mersey turned out to have surprising connections to the house.
