"It's going to be a wonderful journey". The amiable Ade Edmondson's catchphrase certainly lives up to its promise. This light-hearted trip through "God's Country" is both amusing and moving, in the best possible way. Ade's love of the "Broad Acres" comes shining through each episode, which seem to be over all too quickly.
I was enchanted by the Dales many years ago, being fortunate to live quite close to them, but perhaps from a Yorkshireman's point of view "the wrong end". As a "Lancastrian", my only gripe is Ade's failure to mention that one of the counties "surrounding" the Dales is the Red Rose County!
A minor detail, as a "Lancashire Lad" I'm big enough not to let such an omission bother me, and I'll continue to do "missionary" work every time I enter the county of the "White Rose". In the meantime, good lad Ade, can't wait for series two on DVD.
