Gladstone on Prime Time BBC TV

Six celebrities travelled back in time to the relentless graft of Victorian Britain when they spent 24 hours amidst the bottle ovens of Gladstone Pottery Museum in the BBC TV programme "24 Hours in the Past."

Alistair McGowan, Ann Widdecombe, Miquita Oliver, Zoe Lucker, Tyger Drew-Honey and Colin Jackson had ovens to keep alight, clay to prep and pots to make in the show which was broadcast on 12 May 2015.

 The show boosted visitor numbers at the museum.
