Reviews for The Curious House Guest BBC 2
“Once again an enjoyable, instructive and thought-provoking time had by all. Me included.”
Christopher Matthew, The Daily Mail
“Musson is a splendid fellow and is to the aristocracy what Ray Mears is to the native Indian.”
Peter Conchin, The Independent
“There’s time before dinner to admire gilded plaster ceilings and for Jeremy to talk us through the influence of Andrea Palladio on English architecture.”
Sam Wollaston, The Guardian
“It’s a pleasingly relaxed way to get to know a remarkable building… Musson makes for a restrained guide, allowing the pictures, and indeed the owners, to speak for themselves.”
The Mail on Sunday
“Musson is a supremely knowledgeable chap without being too pompous.”
The Radio Times
I have contributed to and made specially commissioned films on heritage and architectural subjects, and also been a consultant on Great Historical Houses on ITV, presented by Julian Fellowes, and on the drama The Hour shown on BBC 2. I have co-presented on screen as an architectural and historical expert on The Dorchester and Claridge’s on The World’s Greatest Hotels, Channel 4, and presented Chatsworth House, on Britain’s Best, shown on BBC 1; I have also been an interviewed expert on Edwardian Supersize Me on BBC 4, presented by Giles Coren, and The Country House Revealed, BBC2, presented by Dan Cruickshank.
In 2005, I presented a series of six programmes for BBC2 called The Curious House Guest. A second series of eight programmes went out in 2007.
I worked with a great team put together by BBC Wales Factual Department, including series producer Richard Trayler-Smith and producer, Ellen Harris, and with director and camera man Steve Geilinger. It was a great experience and I learnt a huge amount working with Richard and Spike (Steve).
