Synopsis

Two films about the poet William Wordsworth and the Lake District. '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.
