Join us on tailored tours of the past.
In each episode we invite our time traveller to pick a year and three scenes to visit from that time. Then for half an hour they take us by the hand into exciting historical moments, eavesdropping on conversations, watching over scenes of drama, joy or despair. In Travels Through Time you get a ringside view to history as never before, with the action described by those who understand it best. Presented by the bestselling historian Peter Moore.
