Osterly House, interior, from Building England Part II

To whet your appetite, we have an exclusive clip from Part II in which Judith tours the grandiose Osterly Park. Located on the western outskirts of London – it’s a Tudor manor house magically transformed by the architectural star of the day, the Scotsman Robert Adam, in 1761, and designed specifically for the function of the 18th century: grand entertainment.

Lights, Action, London!

Lights, Action, London!

Once again, London displayed its reputation as a city of intrigue and wonder as a cacophany of light beamed across the city.

Over the course of a chilly weekend in January, throngs of visitors  flocked to wander the streets and join the hunt in and around the city’s central spots to seek out luminary gems.

Luminous fish kites hovered above the popular shopping district of Regent Street, gigantic flowers resembling triffids swayed in the gardens of Leicester Square, and a series of mannequins formed by netted structures set in various poses; flying above or seated atop rooftops in St.James, near the Piccadilly Arcade.

Lumiere was presented by Artichoke, the production company who brought London to standstill with The Sultan’s Elephant.
