Travelling the length of the UK by journeying across the rooftops of Britain, Griff Rhys Jones explores some of the most arduous and roughest mountain landscapes. It is a journey that takes him from the remotest areas of Northern Scotland to the wilds of Dartmoor in the South West, including some of Britain's most beautiful, rugged and fascinating locations. Along the way, he also reveals how these dramatic terrains came into existence.
While Griff experiences the flora and fauna, the breath-taking landscapes and stunning seasonal shifts, he meets the undiscovered mountain communities and the real people who inhabit Britain's highlands: shepherds, mountain rescue teams, scientists, farmers and artists - they deliver a real understanding and passion for the raw, natural beauty that has fascinated us for centuries. Griff also brings to life the history of epic battles, communities and famous people connected with the places visited.
This magnificent BBC series is Griff Rhys Jones' labour of love, a personal journey of discovery and a lasting testament to some of the most exciting, unique and treasured parts of Britain.

I found it poorly edited, intrusive music and I don't think Griff Rhys Jones was the best choice for such a DVD. Good photography though.Published 5 months ago by Road Rocket
Griff Rhys Jones shows us amazing stories with humour that only he can. He is also one very brave person that is not frightened to have a go at it all.Published 9 months ago by Sonia Ewbank
