    Lacock, In Photography and On Film

    Lacock, In Photography and On Film

    The village of Lacock was once a quaint medieval community with cobbled streets,  cottages and coaching inns set around a tumbling stream. It all looks rather familiar because we've seen it in the cinema, movie theatre and TV screens – scenes from Pride and Prejudice, Downton Abbey and Harry Potter were all shot in Lacock.

    Winging it in the Mountains

    Winging it in the Mountains

    We loved last year's episode featuring Geraldine Fasnacht so much that we've decided to air it again.  Geraldine’s idea of a little light, adrenaline-fuelled recreation is to climb one of Europe's highest peaks and then dive off it in a wing suit at speeds of up to 180 kilometers per hour.
