Produced in 2008 by Lion Television for public broadcaster BBC, Britain from Above was a complex project delivering three hours for BBC1, three half hours for BBC2, an hour for BBC4 and a major website for providing the content online. Deliverables also included a book and a DVD.
BRITAIN FROM ABOVE was inspired by Google Earth and the idea that you could be anywhere in the world, plug in your address and zoom down into your location. The central tenet was about the hidden secrets and patterns you can only see when you look at something from above. The concept was very much story lead: What could you see from above that changed your perspective?
