the crafters are in lu­ton to dis­cover more about the his­tory of Bri­tish man­u­fac­tur­ing. These days, Lu­ton is best known for its air­port, but it was once the hat cap­i­tal of the world. Pre­sen­ter Steph Mc­gov­ern learns about a hat­maker’s skills, how the for­tunes of Lu­ton rose and fell over the cen­turies, and how Princess Diana’s pen­chant for a fe­dora and a fas­ci­na­tor put Lu­ton’s milliners back in busi­ness.

Hats off to Lu­ton’s milliners!
