History as Future - TV Show Who's Been Sleeping in My House?

Wednesday 9 November 2011

Who's Been Sleeping In My House? is a new Australian series presented by archaeologist Adam Ford that looks at the stories behind some of our old homes. Adam is the man behind the recent 'Ned Kelly' dig among other great archaeology finds here in Australia and the UK. As a futurist I'm always interested in history and the stories that frame the societies in which we live. This 8 Part series is sure to be a great show and an example of innovative TV in action. And just think, next time you wander through that old house your friends have just bought, ask yourself 'who slept there first?'

You can find more details about the show on the ABC website via the link: This new series is kicking off next week
