WALKS OF LIFE
8 x 60 min for BBC One
In this new series for Sunday mornings, BBC 1 will get to the heart of the fascinating cultural and spiritual narratives that can be found throughout the Great British countryside. Presented by Mehreen Baig and JB Gill, every episode will invite the audience along on a specially curated walk that will explore modern attitudes to religion, belief and society’s relationship with the spectacular landscapes around us.
Each journey will be organised around a theme; these might be literary, historical, geographical or artistic. One week we might be following in the footsteps of Wordsworth in the Lake District; the next, trekking the wild moors of the Cairngorms National Park that once entranced Queen Victoria. Along the way, JB and Mehreen will meet fascinating and inspiring people from that area and with their help, will uncover the stories behind the spiritually significant places located there, be they places of worship and ancient monuments, or burial grounds or sites of pilgrimage.
