Series overview
Countrywise: Guide To Britain sets out to inspire us all to explore the beautiful British countryside – with its hidden gems, natural wonders and great escapes.
Across the series Ben Fogle and Liz Bonnin will be our guides to the great outdoors - along with some well-known faces who'll share their love of their countryside with us.
The series also meets the people who call our countryside home – like mum of nine, best selling author and shepherdess Amanda Owen, as she welcomes yet another new arrival down on her Yorkshire Dales farm.
Episode 1
In this first episode Ben Fogle heads out on a tour of the stunning Isles of Scilly with his guide Colin Taylor - the police sergeant in charge of this little piece of British paradise.
Meanwhile Liz Bonnin is in Dorset on the spectacular jurassic coast to meet some of the millions of birds who travel thousands of miles to reach our shores each spring; and Olympic cyclist Victoria Pendleton joins the Household Cavalry on their annual holiday ride out at Holkham Sands in Norfolk.
