THE fas­ci­nat­ing facts be­hind the fa­cade of one of Ho­bart’s quirki­est her­itage homes are set to be re­vealed to­mor­row night.

In the new ABC se­ries Who’s Been Sleep­ing In My House?, ar­chae­ol­o­gist Adam Ford en­ters the prop­er­ties of peo­ple across the coun­try to un­cover the hid­den sto­ries per­me­at­ing bricks and mor­tar.

‘‘ It was fab­u­lous re­ally,’’ Ford says. ‘‘ You’ve got this mo­ment in time to en­gage with the lo­cal com­mu­nity and say, ‘ This is your her­itage, let’s get amongst it’.’’

And they did. The show has al­ready seen Ford travel to Fre­man­tle in Western Aus­tralia, where he in­ves­ti­gated the his­tory be­hind a Vic­to­rian sand­stone cot­tage, and tonight he’s at Ho­bart’s Bat­tery Point ( pic­tured), home to the most crowded col­lec­tion of his­toric build­ings in Aus­tralia.
