Art Deco arrived in Britain in the 1920s and brought some bling and glamour to people's lives during the Depression. In this 4x30 series, David Heathcote visits four Art Deco gems which broke the mould and captured a new egalitarian spirit in design. He goes behind the scenes in Claridges Hotel, still the epicentre of Art Deco chic today, visits London Transport HQ at 55 Broadway - the first skyscraper in Britain - and explores the design of the Tube. He discovers Casa del Rio, a hidden Art Deco gem of a house in Devon, and travels to Venice in the most glamorous style imaginable - on the Orient Express.

Producer/Directors: Angus Cameron & Marcus Harben
