A collection of films taking in some of the most stunning scenery in the United Kingdom. 'Great Walks in Scotland' journeys to the beautiful and sometimes treacherous mountains of Scotland, looking at the scenery along the way including picturesque villages and breathtaking natural sights. In 'Great Walks in the Yorkshire Dales', native Yorkshireman Paul Hannon joins Cameron McNeish on this collection of walks around the beautiful countryside of the Yorkshire Dales. They show the viewer some of the best walks in the region while pointing out interesting sights and recounting local legends. 'The Lake District: A Bird's Eye View' takes you over the tops of some of Lakeland's best-loved mountains including Helvellyn, the Langdale Pikes, Pillar and, of course, Scafell Pike and Great Gable. 200 years ago, the Lake District's greatest poet, William Wordsworth, invited readers to imagine they were on a cloud hovering above Great Gable and the Scafell range - the highest land in England. Starting from where Wordsworth could only imagine, this film takes a breathtaking bird's eye view of the landscape that was his inspiration. 'Wordsworth's Lakeland' explores the beautiful English Lake District and its magnificent scenery which so inspired Wordsworth. Combining readings from Wordsworth's poetry with stunning visual images of the landscape that inspired it, the film captures the changing moods and seasons of the Lake District.
