Secrets of the Tower of London

Watch Sunday, October 27, 2013 at 8pm on WMHT TV.

Standing guard over its city for nearly 1,000 years, the Tower of London has been a royal castle, a prison, a place of execution and torture, an armory and the Royal Mint. In SECRETS OF THE TOWER OF LONDON, PBS goes behind the tower’s ancient walls, exposing its stories, unlocking doors to rooms never before seen on television, talking to the people who do stealth jobs in the edifice and revealing little-known facts about this English icon.

The monumental building that was supposed to last forever was destroyed after 53 years.
