PREVIEW: Bronte's Britain with Gyles Brandreth, Channel 5

Gyles travels to the West Yorkshire moors, a landscape synonymous with the stories of Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte, who spent almost their entire lives there.

Gyles visits the Parsonage, where the sisters lived and which is now preserved as the Bronte Museum. However, 130 years ago it was where the young Brontes' imaginations flourished.

As children, they invented imaginary worlds here, and as adults wrote literary classics such as Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.

Bronte's Britain with Gyles Brandreth airs Tuesday 29th June at 9pm on Channel 5.
