Product description

* A paperback edition of this bestselling title * The companion book to the BBC's landmark series * Features awe-inspiring images and fascinating text Britain From Above is the official book accompanying the BBC's landmark seven-part tv series aired on BBC1, BBC2 and BBC4. The book features exclusive, awe-inspiring photography from the programme, as well as computer simulations charting Britain's natural history, its industry and transport systems, natural heritage and archaeology. Britain From Above represents the landscape of a nation as it's never been seen before. In his Foreword, Andrew Marr writes: 'After months of talking, looking and travelling, it is impossible not to be impressed anew by the roiling, bubbling and borderline-chaotic energy of the country. Britain is a most unnatural place.'
