Timeshift Air Dates

S16E02 - Sailors, Ships & Stevedores: The Story of British Docks Air Date: 26 October 2016 20:00 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

For generations, Britain's docks in cities like Liverpool, London and Cardiff were our commercial portals to the world but, as Timeshift shows, they were so much more. Docks were gateways for the arrival of new sounds, styles and cultures to the British Isles. But the docks have also been in the front line of traumatic economic changes that have forced their transformation in the 21st century into clean, contemporary hubs for leisure and the arts. Narrated by Sue Johnston.

S16E03 - Penny Blacks and Twopenny Blues: How Britain Got Stuck on Stamps Air Date: 14 November 2016 21:00 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

Timeshift charts the evolution of the British postage stamp and examines how these sticky little labels became a national obsession. Like many of us, writer and presenter Andrew Martin collected stamps when he was young, and now he returns to that lost world to unpeel the history of iconic stamps like the Penny Black and the Blue Mauritius, study famous collectors like King George V and the enigmatic Count Phillip de Ferrary, and to meet present-day philatelists at a stamp club.

S16E04 - Booze, Beans & Bhajis: The Story of the Corner Shop Air Date: 19 December 2016 21:00 -

Sorry, but right now we don't have any sources for this episode.

Journalist Babita Sharma, the daughter of shopkeepers, explores the growing and shifting fortunes of the corner shop to discover why this unsung hero has been at the centre of ordinary lives for more than 70 years. The corner shop has always been there for us, it's a British institution. It was on the frontline of what was happening in society from the '40s to the noughties. It saved our bacon during World War II and it has become a rite of passage for new immigrants. With contributions from comedian Sanjeev Singh Kholi and actor Nitin Ganatrathis, the film uses the shop as a way to explore the social fabric of Britain - from economic change to immigration. The death of the corner shop has been predicted many times - but still it soldiers on. So just how has it managed to survive?

S16E05 - Flights of Fancy: Pigeons and the British Air Date: 07 February 2017 21:00 -
