For The Love of Britain is a new ITV series in which Julie Walters invites us to take a great escape into our great outdoors.
Britain - the majestic isle we call home - is made up of some gloriously varied landscapes. Sitting within those landscapes are the cherished places we never tire of and plenty of hidden gems many of us are yet to discover. For The Love of Britain provides a guide to both, taking us on a journey through all that’s truly great about our country.
With the help of some familiar faces, the series explores the length and breadth of the nation, with each episode focussing on a different part of the UK. From our lakes, to our peaks and our sweeping coastline, viewers will be guided through our green and pleasant island home... from those who both live in it and love it.
Episode 1 focuses on Cornwall and Devon, two counties attracting millions of hikers, holidaymakers and surfers every year.
Julia Bradbury heads off on one of the nation’s best-loved walking trails, the rugged South West Coastal Path. Robson Green takes to the skies for a bird’s eye view of Cornwall’s St Agnes heritage coast.
On the historic St Michael’s Mount, Ben Fogle experiences gardening at a whole new level, and Liz Bonnin gets up close to some amazing wildlife in the waters off Devon’s Lundy Island.
For The Love Of Britain (10x30') begins Tuesday 01st December at 7:30pm on ITV.
