Doc­u­men­tary: Ge­orge Clarke’s Na­tional Trust Un­locked, 4Seven, 9.30pm

- Architecture · Arts · National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty · George Clarke

In­trepid Ge­orge ( left) vis­its one of the Na­tional Trust’s quirki­est build­ings in Devon – a bear hut on the 6,400- acre Killer­ton es­tate. The main house was given away many years ago be­cause of the so­cial­ist ideals of the aris­to­cratic fam­ily who lived there. The pre­sen­ter also un­earths se­crets and scan­dal at Bad­des­ley Clin­ton Hall, a for­ti­fied Tu­dor manor house in War­wick­shire where in the past the ar­chi­tec­ture has meant the dif­fer­ence be­tween life and death. Later, he heads home to the north- east and takes a stroll through Gib­side Es­tate, a land­scaped park with royal con­nec­tions and crowned with jaw- drop­ping ar­chi­tec­ture.
