The building of a Georgian city

The City of Bath is famous, above all, for its elegant and imposing Georgian buildings.

 Perhaps less well known is the story of its development; a story of human endeavour and achievement, inspired by a desire for architectural elegance, but founded on the financial reality of speculative business.

This film traces the development of Bath, explains the architectural principles which influenced the design of its buildings, and describes the nature and form of their construction.
