Treasure Houses of Britain


This is not just about some of the world's best-loved buildings, spectacular as they are; it is about the treasures within that tell a human story, from the tapestries which the First Duke of Marlborough commissioned to celebrate his triumph at the Battle of Blenheim, to the Italian pietra dura cabinet which the Medicis gave to the owners of Burghley - the greatest Elizabethan house in England (5 x 44-46m)
