Sir John Betjeman narrates three classic BBC films documenting some of England's most historical and picturesque places.
Part 1: An Englishman's Home (1969) - take a helicopter trip over some of Britain's extraordinary houses with Sir John Betjeman and glimpse the country's deep history in the process. From Iron Age forts to gentrified seaside pavilions, this travelogue reveals Britain's changing face through time.
Part 2: Beside the Seaside (1969) - traces the origins of the British seaside holiday, which is said to have originated with King George III. Concentrating on the South West, the flying camera captures the natural beauty of the landscape and character of the British people beside the sea.
Part 3: One Man's County; Cornwall (1964) - John Betjeman looks at the texture of Cornwall.
