Michael Portillo's Abandoned Britain

Michael Portillo's Abandoned Britain (2017)

Scattered across these islands are mysterious buildings that hold the key to some of Great Britain's biggest secrets. In this series, Michael Portillo will unlock the doors to four extraordinary abandoned locations to reveal his hidden history of Britain; The Royal London Hospital, a 400-year-old prison, a ghost village, and a top-secret military base. What is justice for? How did Britain pioneer a health system for everyone? How do they weigh up the rights of the individual against the needs of the State? And how much should the people know about what their government does to keep them safe?
