A most enjoyable and beautifully presented series on Britains outdoors,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mountain - Exploring Britain's High Places: Complete BBC Series [DVD]  (DVD)
There was not a single dull moment throughout Griffs beautiful series and certain episodes really stood out as programmes of real interest.
The episode on the Pennines was of rare quality,naturally it was difficult to include everything on such a huge area of land stretching from County Durham to the foothills of Derbyshire but its clear that his source material and advisors did a superb job.
His comments on less than half an hour away were people who had never seen a mountain let alone walk them was quite thought provoking.
Here was a series of programmes that made you want to visit these gorgeous areas with the programme on the Scottish Highlands particulary memorable.
Many of us have never visited the wilder parts of the United Kingdom but what Griff chose to show us was very revealing almost inviting us to come and enjoy the countryside ourselves.
An episode to please everyone and its a pleasant surprise to see that this superb dvd set is available even before the series had finished.
Living here in the foothills of Snowdonia i was tempted to book accomodation in Scotland having seen his profile on the Highlands.
Yes you can read the many books produced highlighting The Lakes or Scotland but they do not reveal the true nature of those wild areas as a programme such as this one can.
How could somebody do justice to such diverse areas as the Lakes,the Highlands,the Pennines and Snowdonia in such short space of time speaks volumes of this lovely series.
Even if you are not the outdoor type you couldnot denie this series was superb and for those who missed it or want to see it again (me included) then the dvd set is something you will want to see again and again because this was quality television.
