Synopsis: Britain From Above is the official book accompanying BBC?s landmark seven-part television series of the same name, hosted by Andrew Marr. The series sets out to show how the country works and the best way to see it working is from above. It will investigate Britain?s past and show how analyzing the country from an aerial perspective can reveal much about the future. The program will show how satellites are used to monitor change and how the spy-in-the-sky monitors traffic flow, tracks weather systems, documents "Secret Britain," records farmers? land use, and logs the flow of pollutants. The book contains three main sections?Britain?s Landscape, Man Made Britain, and Wild Britain, showing island Britain?s constant battle with the elements. Aerial footage will show how phantom traffic jams appear and how floodwater ebbs and flows, while computer simulations will show the effects of building development in the next 50 years to show what London could look like in 2058. The book will be a compilation of the most stunning images and computer simulations shown in the series, charting Britain?s natural history, its industry and transport systems, its natural heritage, and archaeology.

About the Author: Ian Harrison has written and researched a number of books on subjects ranging from modern airports to ancient battlefields, including Book of Inventions and  Take Me to Your Leader.
