Tony Robinson and the team travel to Derwentcote in Co Durham, where they explore the Industrial Revolution's impact on the region by digging through the undergrowth to search for old furnaces and forges. Their investigation is also helped by the diary of an 18th-century industrial spy, and records from the time help shed light on how the area's cottage industries gave way to the power of expanding cities such as Sheffield.
