A House Through Time – 28 September 2021 – 28/9/2021 – BBC Two

House Through Time – Series 4 Episode 4 of 4 – The final episode opens at the outbreak of the Second World War, and our house is home to the Wood family. While father John serves as an ARP warden, teenage son Geoffrey joins the Merchant Navy and finds his ship is a target for German U-boats.

The next residents are Yorkshireman Michael and his Greek wife Popi. Tracing their story, David uncovers a romance forged in war-torn Europe that leads the couple to England via Italy and eventually to a bustling neighbourhood of New York City.

As Britain lifts out of post-war austerity, the house is bought by Alan and Edith Weir. They both work on the famous newspaper, the Yorkshire Post. In Edith, David discovers a woman with surprising talents.

Finally, there’s an emotional return to Number 5 for a group of students who shared our house around the Millennium, witnessing first-hand Leeds’s rebirth from industrial decline to a vibrant modern city.
