Alison Hammond goes on the ultimate school history trip with a twist. In her own unique and inimitable style, Alison will be travelling across the country and back in time on a historical journey to discover some of the black figures whose stories have been hidden in Britain’s history.
This revelatory documentary throws light on these special people and their achievements during different eras commonly taught on the National Curriculum -- Romans, Tudors, Victorians and WWI.
As she investigates; meeting historians, exploring the archives and visiting places where history has been made, Alison brings a fresh perspective to the traditional British history narrative.
The special programme airs on Tuesday 6th October at 9pm on ITV.
