Embark on a beautiful journey to explore some of Britains most glorious gardens and countryside from a striking new perspective.
Horticulturalist Christine Walkden takes us "up, up and away" in a hot air balloon for a bird's eye view over a chosen county, flying over some of the finest gardens in the world. Her thrilling airborne adventure takes in some of the glories of the countryside as Christine gently floats above, exploring the rich social, horticultural and - most importantly - human history of a treasured garden gem, discovering how it was created, how it's maintained and how it's an inspiration to others. Along the way we'll get a fascinating insight into each county's history and geography, and meet the people who form the beating heart of any garden.
In this first collection, Christine's airborne adventures take us to eight regions including Cornwall, Essex, Mid-Wales, Yorkshire, Sussex, Oxfordshire and Northumberland and North Wales. Warm in tone, rich in factual content and spectacular to watch, aerial photography from the balloon, from BBC archive and from aerial film drones provide a fresh perspective on some of Britain's most magnificent and best-loved gardens.
