David Olusoga presents this history of the residents of one particular house in Liverpool.

The opening episode follows the occupiers of the house in the 1840s and 50s, beginning with a customs clerk with a taste for good furniture who first lived there. Then there is a seemingly middle class couple who were actually servants, and another resident who ended up in debtors prison.

A House Through Time is on BBC Two at 21.00.
