iPlayer tip # 3 : Mountain

July 30, 2007

Griff Rhys Jones makes a bid for Michael Palin style stardom in a series which combines some geological study, moutain climbing and some human interest stories in and around some of Great Britain’s more inhospitable areas.

It was a real joy to watch. Real Sunday night fayre with some surprising revelations and reminders, not least the fact that there are plenty of areas in Great Britain where there isn’t a 24 hour shop, cash machine or a mobile phone signal. Very humbling indeed.

Nothing too taxing and there’s a real sting in the tale concerning a the Cuillin mountain range in Scotland which is up for sale for a mere £19.2 million. Simon and I not putting in an offer, so feel free to jump the queue.
