Britain from above

A landmark cross-platform BBC series, showing modern day Great Britain from the sky.

An epic journey revealing the secrets, patterns and hidden rhythms of our lives from a striking new perspective. The series examines how each and every person in Britain is interconnecting, making Britain what it is today. It includes stunning data visualisations, aerial photography and satellite imagery.

Britain looks very different from the skies. From a bird’s eye view of the nation, its workings, cities, landscapes and peoples are revealed and re-discovered in new and extraordinary ways. Cutting edge technology allows you to see through cloud cover, navigate the landscape and witness familiar sights as never seen before.

This landmark series of documentaries was filmed in High Definition and aired on BBC One, Two and Four for three weeks starting August 10, 2008. The website allows you to watch all the films from the programmes, exclusive material including Rewinds through time at 16 different locations, Rough Cuts of magic moments and Behind the Scenes.
