York’s Haines Shoe House to be featured on BBC’s ‘Worlds Weirdest Homes’

 

The world famous Haines Shoe House be featured tonight on the BBC’s Channel 4 documentary ‘World’s Weirdest Homes’. The live feed will be blocked if you try to stream it from anywhere other than the U.K. Do a Google search to see if there are ways to bypass this block. I’d imagine the program will find it’s way onto YouTube after the live broadcast as well.
