  • National Treasures Live – Beaulieu Motor Museum

    The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu has been chosen as one of the locations for a new, peak time series on BBC1, starting on August 10 and fronted by historian Dan Snow and BBC Breakfast presenter Sian Williams. In a lively mix of film reports, Dan and Sian, together with a team of celebrity reporters and historians, will reveal some of the country’s most mysterious, surprising and compelling stories.

    The programme, to be broadcast live from Beaulieu at 7.30pm on Wednesday, 31st August, will tell the story of early motoring and feature a number of vehicles from the museum’s collection including a replica of the first practical motor car, the 1886 Benz, and the Grenville Steam Carriage, the earliest passenger carrying road vehicle still running.
