[edit] Information

Andrew Marr microlights and paraglides through the skies, getting a buzzard's eye view of the nation's untamed and untameable landscape. Along the way, he joins geologists, meteorologists, amateur photographers and festival goers to explore Britain's geology, the impact of the weather on our shores and the riches hidden beneath our feet.

[edit] Twenty Four Hour Britain

Swooping over towns and cities, allows Andrew Marr to see them from a new angle as he meets the people whose work takes them high above us to monitor and manage the networks that keep the country working.

[edit] The City

Revealing the transformation of Britain's most important city: her capital, London. We track the changes that came out of five years of bombing. Comparing exhaustive footage of London in the 40s with the city of today, we see how great plans for urban renewal were stillborn and, instead, London rebuilt itself in an ad hoc way along old street patterns. The only exception to this was the dramatic city that rose from the derelict docklands.

[edit] Man-Made Britain

Andrew Marr goes on a journey to discover how some of the greenest landscapes in the British Isles were actually shaped and moulded by human hands down the centuries. He looks at everything from the ancient 'wild wood' and Iron Age forts lurking in Britain's forests to the present-day strain modern economic needs put on the countryside.

[edit] The Land

Turning back time and drawing on previously unseen archive footage to show the dramatic transformation of Britain's cities, landscape and industry. Nowhere shows the transformation that has swept the British countryside in the last 60 years more than East Anglia. Aerial photographs taken before the Second World War depict an isolated rural landscape but the war transformed East Anglia into a crucible of a land revolution as its agriculture was quickly industrialised.

Andrew Marr microlights and paraglides through the skies, getting a buzzard's eye view of the nation's untamed and untameable landscape. Along the way, he joins geologists, meteorologists, amateur photographers and festival goers to explore Britain's geology, the impact of the weather on our shores and the riches hidden beneath our feet.

[edit] The Industrial Landscape

The story of how Britain's industrial heartlands have changed. In 1939 the Luftwaffe secretly photographed the backbone of the British economy: the South Wales coalfields that powered the nation; Swindon, at the heart of Britain's railway network; and Manchester, home to the great port of Salford and Trafford Park. Comparing those images with ones from 2008, the sheer scale and speed of change becomes vividly apparent.
