Secrets Of The Tower Of London

Airs Monday, October 13, 2014 at 10 p.m. on KPBS TV

Above: White Tower from across the river.

PBS unmasks the real-life drama and intrigue hidden within the walls of notable British landmarks in three one-hour specials from Pioneer Productions: "Secrets Of The Tower Of London" , "Secrets Of Selfridges" and "Secrets Of Scotland Yard."

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.

This episode originally aired in 2013.
