Penelope Keith travels to villages across Britain
25 June 2017 | by barryrdSee all my reviews

Penelope Keith does a superb job hosting this series and she has excellent research and interview subjects to back her up. I am fortunate to be able to find quality British shows in Canada like this one on PBS, Vision and TV Ontario. I have seen a number of programs and Penelope Keith sparkles with wit and enthusiasm as she tells us about the villages she is visiting. Interviews take place in these locations with residents who know and appreciate the history and people in each one. I viewed villages in areas such as Cornwall, East Anglia, Yorkshire, the Lake District and Scotland where she visited a village near the Queen!s residence at Balmoral. There are many stories to be told in these out of the way villages that you realize the wealth of interest away from the usual tourist destinations. An excellent television series.
