Dan Cruickshank continues the story of 1,000 years of palace building by charting the arrival of a new style borrowed from ancient Rome and beyond.

He examines how kings and queens of Britain demanded that architecture proclaimed their right to rule, resulting in homes becoming like bejewelled caskets.

He focuses on London's Banqueting House and the birth of Buckingham Palace via Kensington, Kew and a new wing at Hampton Court, but reveals that disaster was just around the corner.
