In four fascinating and enchanting programmes, Alan Titchmarsh reveals how the seasons affect life in Britain – from Autumn mists to Spring pastures; Halloween celebrations to Mad March Hares and from boating on the Thames to snow-covered Yorkshire Dales. In Britain, we are blessed with four very distinct seasons; each with its own character, charm, and idiosyncrasies. As Alan Titchmarsh takes us through the year, he reveals how and why we are so inextricably linked to the seasonal cycle. Alan seeks out people whose lives are still deeply affected by the changes each season brings. He looks at our seasonal festivals and activities and investigates how lengthening nights and variations in temperature transform our flora and fauna. And, of course, the series revels in the spectacular natural images that the seasons deliver: starlings swarming above Brighton Pier; the fearsome autumn deer rut; the intricate mating rituals of our birds; the dance of the adders and the extraordinary sub-aquatic sight of toads wrestling to win a mate.With his knowledge and enthusiasm for gardening and natural history, Alan Titchmarsh is the perfect guide on this absorbing journey of discovery.

This is a wonderful trip through the British countryside throughout the year. Its a great way to get to know better and to understand this beautiful land called Britain.
Why this is so good is because we don't get bogged down in loads of facts, just enough to keep you interested, albeit things that you probably already know. Showing different people who work such as farmers, to pepole whose work is more seasonal such as coppicing and certain types of fishing Alan gives us something that is nice to relax to and enjoy.
Of course you are probably like me and really will watch this for the animal scenes, but there is also some scenes of how we celebrate the seasons from our pagan past. This is good for the whoe family to watch and must surely be an aid in getting young ones interested in the countryside.
