brickbybricklogo

In 2012 Charlie co-presented Brick by Brick with Dan Cruickshank.

A fascinating show which set out to uncover the hidden stories behind historic buildings as they were dismantled and then rebuilt in a different location.  The buildings included a fully working, coal fired Edwardian fish and chip shop!

Catch the shows on Wednesdays, 9pm, on BBC4.  Also available on the iPlayer.
