The look of our houses and gardens today owes much to Sir Edwin Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll. Paul Atterbury explores their dynamic and influential partnership and their work together between the 1890s and the 1930s, from the Arts and Crafts Movement to Art Deco. Included is their powerful work for the War Graves Commission in the aftermath of the First World War.

Paul Atterbury is a historian, writer, lecturer, broadcaster and curator who specialises in the art, architecture and design of the 19th and 20th centuries. He has written many books, on art and antiques, sculpture, design, canals, railways and the First World War, and for 24 years has been a member of the BBC Antiques Roadshow team of experts. He lives in Weymouth with his wife who is a great gardener, and so enjoys the fruits of her labours.
