Griff's Great Britain

Following the success of A Great Welsh Adventure, Griff Rhys Jones sets out on a typically intrepid series of explorations and challenges in a brand-new ITV series for early 2016.

With his trademark inquisitiveness and thirst for the eclectic and little-known, Griff sets out to explore eight very disparate kinds of quintessentially British terrain, from downs to highlands, coasts to wolds and everything in between – unearthing some quirky and funny facts en route.

Britain is home to a huge variety of landscapes, and their sheer natural abundance takes centre stage as Griff investigates how they have each dictated different ways of living, working and playing – both in the past and as they are now - across the entire country.

And as he embarks on each stage of his journey, Griff encounters a unique challenge. It could be posted in a shop window, stuck inside a parking ticket, even emblazoned across a deckchair, and demanding an often bizarre-sounding task, from finding a golden eagle to hunting a vampire.
