For The Love of Britain

Series overview

The series is 10 x 30 minute episodes for ITV, narrated by Julie Walters and featuring contributions from Julia Bradbury, Robson Green, Liz Bonnin, Ade Edmondson, Katherine Kelly, Ore Oduba, Sheila Hancock, Gino D’Acampo and Ben Fogle, amongst many others.

For The Love of Britain is a new 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 - Cornwall and Devon

In this new series narrated by Julie Walters we’re invited to escape into the great British outdoors, unearthing hidden gems and exploring celebrated treasures. In this opening episode we’re in 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.
