Watch UK telly: Majesty and Mortar: Britain’s Great Palaces

Majesty and Mortar: Britain’s Great Palaces is a wonderful documentary on the BBC iPlayer. Dan Cruickshank tells the story of a thousand years of palace building in an entertaining and informative manner. It’s a bit dry at times but Cruickshank is a master of bringing excitement to his descriptions of wonderful old British palaces.

Thing is, it’s not normally available to watch outside of the UK. So many thanks to the kind soul that uploaded this to Vimeo.

I’m thinking of updating the guide on how to watch the BBC iPlayer when abroad. This is especially for Brits who are abroad and pay their license fee. Not for naughty Americans who wish to watch great British telly. Interested? Let me know below!

Blimey! is your daily dose of British news and features for anglophiles everywhere! This article was carefully written by Tim Holt, a British blogger, photographer and actor based back in the UK after many years of living in America. Forever torn between two magnificent slices of sod.
