A HitchinTV’s Heritage Video Focus Production.

Written and presented by Andy Gibbs MA.

A History of Hitchin: Britain in a Nutshell. The town has a long and remarkable history so it is no surprise that many amateur historians have written excellent histories of Hitchin. This video is not intended to be a comprehensive history. This is a personal view in which I will attempt to place Hitchin in its historical and national context. It is an affectionate view, at times light-hearted. With no apology, it is intended to show this fine town at its best. I hope that, whether you are a local or a welcome visitor, you will enjoy it and it will inspire you to discover more about the town I love.”

A History of Hitchin: A Winter’s Tale. Hitchin TV’s Heritage Video Focus takes a look at Hitchin’s darker side. We will tell tales of grave robbers, highwaymen and life in the workhouse, but what would winter be without Christmas, so do not despair, there will be merriment as well as the macabre.

DVD’s also available from Hitchin Initiative & British Schools Museum.
