Accompanying a major BBC1 series presented by David Dimbleby, and an exhibition at Tate Britain, A Picture of Britain is a celebration of the British landscape and the art that it has inspired, from Constable to Lowry, from Turner to Nash. From the slopes of Snowdonia to the industrial Black Country, from the grandeur of the Scottish Highlands to the meadows of Suffolk, the British landscape has inspired artists and writers for generations. This remarkable book, read by all four contributors, captures our rich cultural heritage, creating for the listener A Picture of Britain.
