PBS unmasks the real-life drama and intrigue hidden within the walls of notable British landmarks in three new one-hour specials from Pioneer Productions: "Secrets Of The Tower Of London" (October 27), "Secrets Of Selfridges" (November 3) and "Secrets Of Scotland Yard" (November 17).

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.
