The Great British Outdoors

BBC Entertainment   |   UK

The fourth in an occasional series for BBC Four. Featuring pure archive with Mark Benton's comedy voice over celebrating the British love affair with the outdoor life. From camping to potholing and all points in between. This programme featured wall-to-wall archive from a large number of disparate sources. Given the format of the programme, the archive needed to be the chief driving force so each piece had to tell a story of some sort to either support the comedy or drive the narrative onwards. The comedy is borne out of the footage supplied and it's up to that footage to set the whole tone of the piece.
