Major ITV1 programme for the summer A whole host of stars to be involved and their participation will be included in the book. A celebration of Britain's favourite geographical locations and vistas that follows in the trend set with BBC's Coast. Programmes that involve public interest, interaction and opinion are hugely popular - Britain's Favourite Briton, Portrait of England, and Restoration. Other interactive opportunities on the web site including posting your own favourite view, wallpaper downloads for mobiles, webcam access at selected views.
Sixteen 'A-list' celebrities each champion one of Britain's most spectacular views. Week by week, the public decide which celebrity - and lovingly photographed view - has won their hearts. By the final programme, just four views/ celebrities remain. A live public vote will now choose "Britain's Favourite View". Celebrating the wonderful diversity of the British landscape and filmed lovingly across an entire calendar year, "Britain's Favourite View" showcases our most stunning vistas within a format which encourages participation, national debate and generates the same sense of event which has distinguished BBC hits like "Great Britons" and "Coast". This tie-in illustrated book will celebrate the history of each location chosen, giving the reader the necessary historical perspective for the TV programme.See all Product description

The concept of the programme was good, sixteen celebrities promoting what, for them is their favourite view in Britain. In practice I felt that it turned out to be celebrities promoting celebrities. Whether the views in general, chosen by the said celebrities are the best is Britain is debatable as many of them will have been put forward for personal reasons and the individuals own memories and love of a place or object. Of course this does not necessarily rub off onto other people so to speak and anyway beauty is in the eye of the beholder
What can be said is that whatever the view or object photographed in the book the photographer's have done an excellent job in trying to capture the mood of a particular place. Night scenes, sunsets, storm clouds, and interesting use of monochrome. in fact all the tricks of the trade are used to enhance the quality of the photographs. For me personally some of the man made structures included in the book surpass even the beauties of nature. The text is concise and to the point, no more and no less than is needed to give a brief history of a particular place or object and do justice to the photograph. All in all a book that goes a long way towards promoting the beauty of the country we live in. Whether they are the best views in Britain is debatable but they are certainly up there with the best.
