Chiswick House is featured on a new television series, Britain's Secret Homes this week. The House can be seen in episode 2 of the ITV series on Friday 14th June at 9 pm. The show is presented by Michael Buerk and historian Bettany Hughes.

Each episode is presented from a different English Heritage property, with Michael and Bettany filmed against the historical backdrops of Wrest Park in Bedfordshire, Chiswick House and Gardens , Down House, Darwin's home in Kent, Dover Castle, also in Kent and Audley End House in Essex. The stories of the Top 50 secret homes are brought to life using archive footage, cutting edge CGI and dramatic reconstruction.

The series also includes contributions from an eclectic range of well-known people and experts, including Sir David Jason, Ricky Tomlinson, Twiggy and Michael Portillo.

In partnership with English Heritage and the heritage bodies from Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, each story is brought to life using archive, cutting edge CGI and dramatic reconstruction. From country manor houses to unassuming terraced two-up two-downs, the programmes deliver eye-opening accounts of political intrigue and conspiracy as well as amazing human interest stories.
