Written by John Terraine
Narrated by Robert Lang

For 1,000 years the story of Britain was one of invasion and conquest, but since 1066 there has been no successful invasion of our land.
In this film John Terraine uses the helicopter to give a new view of the history of the island's defence - from Roman forts to Norman castles, from Victorian fortresses to missile bases.

A series of three programmes

From dawn to dusk, super tramp John Hillaby takes us with him for a long stroll on Hampstead Heath, his stamping ground for the past 26 years.
Amusing anecdotes from the days when 'Highwaymen hung crackling on the gallows'; penetrating observations of the profusion and variety of life on the Heath - from its insects, to its concert, pub and fairground lovers - provide a delightful picture of an area heard of by every Britisher, close to the heart of every Londoner, but intimately known to very few.
