Synopsis

Britain's Best The Nation's Favourite Historical Sites by Alan Titchmarsh

Britain's Best is a brand new series from UKTV History as part of a national campaign to encourage the public to visit, nominate and vote for the historical places that matter most to them. Presented by Alan Titchmarsh, the five programmes will feature 25 of the best-loved historical sites in Britain and will culminate in a final show revealing the nation's favourites. Each programme will cover a region of Britain: London will be presented by Sanjeev Bhaskar ( Kumars at No.42 ); South by Rory McGrath; Scotland by Neil Oliver ( Coast ); North by Sue Johnstone ( The Royle Family ) and Wales and Central by Lenny Henry. Sites will include famous Palaces, Castles, Religious Buildings, Historic Houses and Gardens.

About the Author

Alan Titchmarsh

Alan Titchmarsh is known to millions through the popular BBC TV programmes British Isles: A Natural History, How to be a Gardener, Ground Force and Gardeners' World. But he started out in far humbler beginnings, in a rural childhood on the edge of Ilkley Moor in Yorkshire.

After a spell at Kew he became a horticultural journalist, as an Editor of gardening magazines, before becoming a freelance broadcaster and writer.

He has twice been named 'Gardening Writer of the Year' and for four successive years was voted 'Television Personality of the Year' by the Garden Writers' Guild. In 2004 he received their Lifetime Achievement Award.

Alan has appeared on radio and television both as a gardening expert and as an interviewer and presenter, fronting such programmes as Points of View, Pebble Mill, Songs of Praise, Titchmarsh's Travels and Ask the Family, and since 1983 has presented the BBC's annual coverage of The Chelsea Flower Show. He now has his own daytime TV show on ITV, The Alan Titchmarsh Show. Alan has written more than forty gardening books, as well as seven best-selling novels, including his 2008 success, Folly, which have all made the Sunday Times Bestsellers List. Alan has published three volumes of memoirs; Trowel and Error sold over 200,000 copies in hardback when published in 2002, and Nobbut A Lad, about his Yorkshire childhood, was published in October 2006 with similar success, and his third volume of memoir Knave of Spades was a Sunday Times bestseller.

He was made MBE in the millennium New Year Honours list and holds the Victoria Medal of Honour, the Royal Horticultural Society's highest award. He lives with his wife and a menagerie of animals in Hampshire where he gardens organically.

Thanks to Lovereading I have discovered new writers and read books I would never had looked twice at - and enjoyed them.

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!
