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 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 8 - Northumberland

Julie Walters narrates as we visit rugged Northumberland, the county with England’s cleanest rivers, darkest night skies – and more castles than anywhere else in the country.

Robson Green tries out a very testing sleepover on the Farne islands, while Denise Welch and Carol McGiffin are walking the Roman Wall. Ade Edmondson heads to sea in search of the treasures of the deep, and Harry Potter star David Bradley returns to Alnwick castle – better known as Hogwarts.
