The History Man in Cornwall
BBC 1, 1992
Presented by Bryan McNerney
I tried to upload 8 episodes in one torrent.
Deleted by the admininistrators because it was incomplete.
Excuses to all of you who started downloading already.
I will upload the individual episodes over a couple of days.
About the presenter

Graduating in English History and Landscape Archaeology in 1981.
Since then Bryan has enjoyed a successful career as a broadcaster, writer and lecturer.
He has an unusually refreshing and entirely natural enthusiasm.
His witty, observant writing and delivery make him an accomplished and unforgettable raconteur.

About the series
There were four series of ‘The History Man’ between 1988 (first TV-appearance of Bryan McNerney) and 1992.
The programmes had over three hundred transmissions on BBC1 and BBC2.
They frequently captured audiences in excess of a million viewers in the UK.
And scored unfailingly high ratings of between 70%-84% in the BBC’s Appreciation Index.
They were also hugely popular with the Armed Forces Network, SSVC.
A fact unknown to Bryan until a couple of tattooed ‘thugs’ from 2 Para scared the life out of him.
By cornering him in a bar… but only to buy him a beer and say how much they enjoyed the show!
